The possibility of compensating for the aberrations of an imaging lens in digital holography is outlined theoretically. The principle is demonstrated with a Mach–Zehnder arrangement and transilluminated objects. Diffraction-limited resolution can be obtained with a plano–convex lens. Amplitude and phase objects were imaged.
