A system for extracting the phase components of an optical traveling wave field has been constructed. This system consists of the Mach-Zehnder interferometer to capture the wave field as the hologram, a photoelectronic scanning system, and an analog computing circuit. The detected phase signal is immediately displayed on a cathode ray tube as continuous-tone patterns. The method has been confirmed through the experimental results.
