Abstract
The holographic principle is reinvestigated based on the Wigner distribution function (WDF). We apply the WDF to the analysis of generic optical setups which are used to record and reconstruct image plane holograms, Fourier holograms, and Fresnel holograms. We use the graphical representation of the Wigner chart to derive various important properties, including the required space bandwidth product of the hologram. This allows us to provide an intuitive analysis of the trade-off between the recording schemes.
