Abstract

In a previous paper [ Opt. Commun. 225, 19–30 (2003) ] we presented a method to reconstruct two- dimensional complex amplitudes by using the ambiguity function of one-dimensional intensity scans, obtained from two optical setups involving cylindrical lenses. We demonstrate that the internal redundancy of the ambiguity function can be utilized to improve the efficiency of this method even further. We show that the phase reconstruction errors can be minimized with an appropriate algorithm, and we present experimental data that illustrate the efficient reconstruction of a two-dimensional phase element.
