Abstract

We comment on a recent Letter by Zhang et al. [Opt. Lett. 31, 1633 (2006)] in which the authors proposed a reconstruction algorithm for high-numerical-aperture (NA) holograms. Such an algorithm has been available for in-line holography for more than a decade. The authors’ “achievement” of high NA for digital in-line holography, NA = 0.17 , is below what was reported already several years ago ( NA = 0.30 ) and is considerably lower than what is routinely achieved now. We present reconstructions of holograms acquired with NAs above 0.4 in which we show maximal achievable resolution.
