Talks about the three-dimensional imaging technique of holography. This book covers the fundamental physical and optical principles of using diffraction to record and reconstruct images, human perception, and the history of holographic imaging with an explanation of both basic and advanced holographic concepts.
This is a book about the three-dimensional imaging technique of holography. It covers the fundamental physical and optical principles of using diffraction to record and reconstruct images, human perception, and the history of holographic imaging with an approachable explanation of both basic and advanced holographic concepts. This authoritative work focuses on practical holography, including methods for white light illumination, full color holography, and holographic recording of natural scenes. The book promotes a hands-on approach to making holograms and an understanding of why and how they work. While several existing texts cover different aspects of the field of holography, none provides a complete, up-to-date, and accessible view of its popular, scientific, and engineering aspects. Hobbyist manuals such as Homemade Holography (Unterseher, Hansen and Schlesinger, Ross Books 1982) and survey works such as Practical Holography (Saxby, Prentice Hall London, 1994) are approachable but focus on the art and craft of holography at the expense of important and instructive foundation concepts. Mature engineering texts such as Optical Holography (Collier, Burckhardt, and Lin, Academic Press 1971) and Handbook of Optical Holography (Caulfield, Academic Press 1979) are strongly math-oriented and lie beyond the reach of many students, laypeople and even engineers from other disciplines. Optical Holography: Principles, Techniques, and Applications (Hariharan, Cambridge University Press 1996) is more accessible but still assumes an optics background. Holographic Imaging bridges these worlds in a single text that conveys a reader from physical first principles to the cutting edge of development of the worlds most advanced three dimensional/interactive displays.
