Abstract

We present what we believe to be a new application of scanning holographic microscopy to superresolution. Spatial resolution exceeding the Rayleigh limit of the objective is obtained by digital coherent addition of the reconstructions of several off-axis Fresnel holograms. Superresolution by holographic superposition and synthetic aperture has a long history, which is briefly reviewed. The method is demonstrated experimentally by combining three off-axis holograms of fluorescent beads showing a transverse resolution gain of nearly a factor of 2.
