In this paper, a new lensless digital holography system with short-coherence light source is reported for recording three-dimensional surface contouring of reflecting micro-objects. In the experiment, each of the layers on the inwall of a conical pore is respectively recorded by changing the path length of the object beam, instead of changing that of the reference beam, which can reduce the recording complexity and errors. In addition, the least-square-polynomial-fitting is used for the first time to carry out three-dimensional reconstruction with a series of two dimensional intensity images of a micro-object, which can be used not only to reduce obviously the complication of the three-dimensional reconstruction, but also to carry out three-dimensional reconstruction of a micro-object with strong laser speckle noise, of which the phase images can not be obtained from the conventional phase unwrapping process. © 2006 Elsevier B.V.
