In this paper, a new method for spatial filtering in digital holography is proposed and verified by simulations compared to conventional methods. The new method is based on the simultaneous acquisition of two digital holograms, which can be separated by distinct spatial modulation, in a single image. Two holograms are generated by two reference waves, which have different spatial modulation orientations. Then, the overlapping region between the DC term and the object wave in the first hologram can be replaced with a less-overlapping region of the object wave in the second hologram because the whole image contains two holograms where the same objective wave has been recorded. In the simulation results, it is confirmed that the reconstructed image by the new method has better quality than for the original method.
