To reach the limiting resolution of a digital holographic system and improve the displaying quality of the reconstructed image, the subdivision convolution algorithm and the subdivision Fresnel algorithm are presented, respectively. The obtained results show that the lateral size of the reconstructed image obtained by two kinds of subdivision algorithms is the same in the central region of the reconstructed image-plane; moreover, the size of the central region is in proportional to the recording distance. Importantly, in the central region of the reconstructed image-plane, the reconstruction can be performed by the subdivision Fresnel algorithm instead of the subdivision convolution algorithm effectively, and, based on these subdivision approaches, both the displaying quality and the resolution of the reconstructed image can be improved significantly. Furthermore, in the reconstruction of the digital hologram with the large numerical aperture, the computer's memory consumed and the calculating time resulting from the subdivision Fresnel algorithm is significantly less than those from the subdivision convolution algorithm.
