We propose a method for reconstructing a complex wavefront from a single-shot in-line digital hologram with a spatial radial carrier. In the proposed method, the spatial radial carrier is generated by a point source that is located in front of an image sensor, as close as possible to the sensor with the condition that the Nyquist limit is not exceeded. A signal processing method employed for elimination of the zeroth-order and conjugate wave components is presented. Computer simulations and optical experiments are performed to verify the proposed method.

Key words: digital holography, spatial radial carrier, digital filtering
