We propose a new approach, forward-scattering holography with a filter, to holographic particle velocimetry for significant improvement in terms of increased effective aperture, modest laser power requirement, simple geometric setup, improved signal-to-noise ratio, and higher seeding density. We achieve this result by using a smooth (Guassian-like) high-pass filter during recording.
