Abstract:

A thorough survey is presented of the ralatively new science of holography. The survey includes a somewhat extensive synopsis of the historical background of the subject. A clear and concise description is given of the physical aspects of holography including an analogy to photography. A mathematical analysis is given of off-axis type holograms. Experimental apparatus is discussed and photographs show actual laboratory setups. The required coherence length of a laser is mentioned. Methods of image reconstruction are illustrated. Several examples of applications are listed along with methods of deployment. One method of making 360 degree holograms is introduced. A bibliography is given of the most recent text books available on the subject. Author
