A coherence theory describing the formation of a hologram by an interesting new technique is presented to improve the theoretical treatment given by Schilling and Templeton [Appl. Opt. 40, 5474 (2001)]. Properties of the hologram pattern are discussed, and some comments are made on its reconstruction.
