This paper presents an illustration of mathematical refocusing of images obtained by the HoloFringe300K electronic holography program. The purpose is to demonstrate that this form of electronic holography is equivalent to image-plane, phase-stepped digital holography. The mathematical refocusing method used here differs from those in common use and may have some advantages.
