Abstract

We use the Viterbi decoding algorithm to resolve depth features beyond the nominal resolution limit of a volume holographic profilometry system. The formulation treats the truncated point-spread function as an intersymbol interference and uses surface constraints and transition constraints to reduce the computational complexity. A factor-of-5 improvement in resolution was obtained in our experimental demonstration.
