In this paper we review volume holographic imaging techniques for 3D imaging. Our investigation focuses on holographic imaging systems that operate with broadband illuminator sources. This type of imaging system has the advantage of reducing or eliminating the need for scanning along lateral or axial direction. However, the utilization of broadband illuminator source produces significant reduction in depth resolution. Modeling and experiments are presented to describe the dependence of lateral and depth resolution on the hologram parameters.
