A dual-plane in-line digital holographic method is proposed with a liquid crystal on silicon (LCOS) spatial light modulator (SLM) for recording holograms at two slightly displaced planes. The computer-generated chirp-like complex reflectance is displayed on the LCOS SLM to adapt the object beam at two planes for recording two holograms processed to eliminate the DC term and twin image accurately; no mechanical components or manual operation during data acquisition is required. The proposed approach improves the speed, accuracy, and stability of the experiment. Computer simulation and experiments for both amplitude and phase objects are carried out to validate the proposed method.
