Is there really all the information of a recorded motif in every fragment of a hologram? In this example, a broken photo plate is supposed to show us whether we can reconstruct the white-light hologram of a helicopter recorded in it. The photo plate was rotated again in 1-degree steps to the reference wave (focused beam of a light-emitting diode flashlight) for each individual photo, so that several views of the three-dimensional object can be observed from the recorded wave field (light amplitude and phase) of the
