We propose and experimentally demonstrate a new (to our knowledge) digital holographic method to reconstruct section images of objects with wavelength-dependent reflectivity. A number of holograms of an object are taken as the illumination angle of the laser beam with a specific wavelength is changed in regular intervals. The complex object fields reconstructed from the holograms are numerically superposed to show the image of a sliced section of the object, whose position and thickness can be chosen arbitrarily. By changing the wavelength of the illumination beam, wavelength-dependent section images can be obtained with our method.
