We derived the point-spread function (PSF) including the recording and reconstruction systems of the modified triangular interferometer; the modified triangular interferometer forms incoherent holograms without bias and the conjugate image. We also derived and analyzed the resolution of the modified triangular interferometer and compared it with that of the conventional one for amplification factor, wavelength, and hologram size.
