Abstract

Whole-field photorefractive holography can be combined with low-coherence interferometry for three-dimensional imaging and other applications, including imaging through turbid media, but the off-axis holographic recording geometry results in a limited field of view when light of low temporal coherence is used. We show that tilting the energy fronts with respect to the wave fronts by use of prisms can eliminate this problem and point out that this approach will be useful for many linear and nonlinear wave-mixing experiments.
