Paper Abstract

In this proceeding, we discuss the method that allows for field of view and reconstruction quality enhancement of pulsed THz holograms recorded by matrix detectors that do not exceed the the object transverse dimensions, at distances, that are comparable with the object size. The method comprises the use of random phase mask situated between the object and the hologram, at the hologram registration process. The introduced phase variation levels out the input from closer and further (to the hologram pixel) points of the object, and thus improves overall reconstruction quality. Here, we study numerically this approach and demonstrate 4 times increase of the properly reconstructed object area, if compared to the undisturbed hologram recording, and consecutive increase of the correlation between the reconstructed and actual object from 0.34 to 0.82.
