Abstract

We propose a holographic microinformation hiding scheme in which the embedding information to be embedded is small and imperceptible to the human eyes. This scheme converts the embedding information into a complex amplitude via scaled diffraction. The complex amplitude of the reduced embedding information is added to the complex amplitude of the host image, followed by conversion to a hologram. The reduced embedded information is inconspicuous from the hologram during the reconstruction process; however, the reduction leads to the degradation of the embedded image quality. Therefore, to improve the quality of the embedded image quality, we employ iterative optimization and the time averaging effect of multiple holograms.
