We derive the phase error of a hologram that is due to the imperfection of a wave plate, the azimuth angle error of a wave plate, and the azimuth angle error of a linear polarizer and analyze the effect of the phase error with a modified triangular interferometer of the three-dimensional image reconstruction of a hologram.
