Volume holographic imaging utilizes Bragg selectivity to optically slice the object space of the imaging system and measure four- (three spatial and one spectral) dimensional object information. The N-ocular version of this method combines multiple-volume holographic sensors and digital postprocessing to yield high-resolution three-dimensional images for broadband objects located at long working distances. We discuss the physical properties of volume holography pertinent to imaging performance and describe two computational algorithms for image inversion based on filtered backprojection and least-squares optimization.
