Abstract

We describe a simple holographic method that has enabled us to capture as a single data set the trajectories of micrometer-sized objects suspended in water. By subtracting consecutive holograms of a particle suspension and then adding these difference holograms, we constructed a final data set that contains the time evolution of the particle trajectories free from spurious background interference effects. The method is illustrated by a recording of the motion of 5–10-μm diameter algae in water.
