A novel artificial diffuser for Fourier transform hologram recording is proposed, and its imaging and spectral properties are analyzed. This new diffuser gives high SNR and resolution characteristics to the holographically reconstructed images and high reliability and redundancy characteristics to the system where holograms are used as information storing media. These characteristics are confirmed by experiments.
