Summary Although they are mostly known by the general public for producing beautiful artworks, holograms are used in a variety of technical applications. From nondestructive testing of composite materials to data storage and processing, there are numerous situations where holography is better suited than any other method. This Field Guide presents an overview of the various concepts of holography, including a theoretical foundation and descriptions of the different types of holograms, techniques used to produce them, and the most common recording materials. Written with a large audience in mind--including students, researchers, and engineers--the book provides a broad panorama of the field to help readers understand its concepts and methodology.
