In-line digital holography is an imaging technique that is being increasingly used for studying three-dimensional flows. It has been previously shown that very accurate reconstructions of objects could be achieved with the use of an inverse problem framework. Such approaches, however, suffer from higher computational times compared to less accurate conventional reconstructions based on hologram backpropagation. To overcome this computational issue, we propose a coarse-to-fine multiscale approach to strongly reduce the algorithm complexity. We illustrate that an accuracy comparable to that of state-of-the-art methods can be reached while accelerating parameter-space scanning.
