For biological samples, which appear transparent, the phase data provides information about the refractive index of the sample. In speckle metrology, the phase can be used to estimate stress and strains of a rough surface with high sensitivity. In this theoretical manuscript we compare and contrast the properties of two techniques for estimating the phase distribution of a wave field under the paraxial approximation: (I) A digital holographic system, and (II) An idealized phase retrieval system. Both systems use a CCD or CMOS array to measure the intensities of the wave fields that are reflected from or transmitted through the sample of interest. This introduces a numerical aspect to the problem. For the two systems above we examine how numerical calculations can limit the performance of these systems leading to a near-infinite number of possible solutions.||Funding Details:||Science Foundation Ireland||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Publisher:||Society of Photo-optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE)||Journal:||in SPIE , Anaheim, California, United States||Volume:||Defense + Commercial Sensing||Copyright (published version):||2017 Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE)||Keywords:||Personal sensing; Speckle metrology; Phase retrieval; Holography; Statistical optics; Refractive index; Paraxial approximations; Metrology||DOI:||10.1117/12.2262485||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Is part of:||Harding, K.G. and Zhang, S.
