A tomographic imaging system based on wavelength-scanning digital interference holography is developed by applying the angular spectrum method. Compared to the well-known Fresnel diffraction formula, which is subject to a minimum distance requirement in reconstruction, the angular spectrum method can reconstruct the wave field at any distance from the hologram plane. The new system allows three-dimensional tomographic images to be extracted with an improved signal-to-noise ratio, a more flexible scanning range, and an easier specimen size selection. Experiments are performed to demonstrate the effectiveness of the method.
