The article considers the problem of intrinsic speckle noise in in-line particle holography of multiple particles. The authors present a model that uses statistical analysis, and diffraction theory to analyze this problem. A discussion is given to the theory of in-line holography of multiple particles, and also its associated speckle, and signal-to-noise ratio. Schematics are presented of scattering of multiple particles in in-line holograms which have been recorded with collimated illumination. Results are also presented of an experimental study of signal-to-noise ratio of in-line holographic images. Finally, an evaluation of multiple scattering, and the aperture effect are presented.
