The phase retrieval algorithm has been used in this paper for whole reconstruction of the optical wave fields. The quantitative information of the phase distribution as well as the intensity distribution of the reconstruction field at different locations along the propagation direction has been achieved from double or multi in-line holograms. Numerical reconstructions of the wave fields from experimentally recorded in-line holograms are presented. This technique can be potentially applied for aberrated wave front analyzing and 3D imaging.
