Book Description

This book is unique in covering most of developments on optical holography starting from photopolymer recording techniques to CMOS based digital holography. It also covers fundamentals and applications of dynamic holography using photorefractive crystals and many different types of digital holography and its many applications. The author examines and discusses i) Basic principles and applications of Real-Time holography using photorefractive crystals, ii) Principles of Computer generated holography and its applications iii) Photopolymer based display holography iv) Principles and techniques of digital holography v) Dynamic and Geometric phase shifting digital holography techniques vi) Principles and applications of Conosocopy holography vii) Principles of Stokes/Correlation holography. This book will include in addition to 7 topics listed in the previous paragraph, some of the important applications of each topic like digital holographic microscopy, Real-Time/Time Average/ Double exposure digital holographic interferometry, digital holographic photoelasticity for stress or strain measurements etc. This book is intended for advanced undergraduate/ and first year graduate level students as well as researchers looking for a complete resource in Holography an includes homework problems and a solutions manual for adopting professors.
