We present multi-spectral holographic three-dimensional image fusion using the discrete wavelet transform (DWT). The fusion results are compared with those of the Gaussian and Laplacian pyramid fusion methods. The advantage of the DWT over other methods is that it has more flexibility in controlling high frequency components as well as low frequency components, which improves the fused image quality. A wavelength tunable solid-state pumped laser is used to record up to 11 holograms with wavelengths from 567 to 613 nm. We present the fused reconstructed holographic images including multi-spectral fused images from the recorded multiple holograms. Fused multi-wavelength reconstructed holographic images provide multi-spectral information about the objects.
