In the research of digital holography, this paper presents a numerical method using an adjustable magnification for local object field reconstruction together with experiment verification. The method first designs a spherical wave according to the given magnification to illuminate the digital hologram, then through a Fourier transform of diffraction, it calculates the reconstructed image plane. Afterward, a filtering window is set in the image plane to extract the image of the local object field, and then the object field reached hologram plane is formed using diffraction’s inverse operation. Finally, the object field is reconstructed through diffraction’s angular spectrum theory.
