Abstract:

The advent of holography and the laser as an extremely intense, coherent light source has opened new dimensions in interferometric techniques. Precision optics are not required, alignment is not a critical factor, and three-dimensional interferograms of a flow field are obtainable. These are only a few of the advantages that stand out over present day interferometers. A brief outline of the holographic interferometric process and its capabilities is presented here. A detailed exposition of the continuous reconstruction beam technique is given from experience gained with such a device in the Department of Aeronautics of the Naval Postgraduate School. Author
