The reconstruction of an object with a method using a dual exposure single inverse Fourier transform is investigated. The method calculates phase information in the Fourier plane to perform the inverse Fourier transform. The phase information in the Fourier plane is calculated from the intensity distributions formed by an object with and without a reference electric field. The method successfully reconstructs an object in a simple and fast manner. For the practical use of the method, the effects of the intensity digitization and the noise in the intensity distributions are examined in reconstructing an object.
