A comprehensive survey of the state of the art in 3-D holographic imaging techniques and applications

This book introduces the general concepts of both real-time and non-real-time 3-D holographic imaging techniques for scientific and engineering applications. It offers readers a fundamental understanding of the concepts of 3-D holographic imaging as well as cost-effective design and implementation. World-renowned experts in the field provide in-depth discussion of the following topics:

  • Holograms of real and virtual point trajectories
  • Self-stabilized real-time holographic recording
  • Principles and applications of optical scanning holography
  • Tangible, dynamic holographic images
  • Holographic laser radar
  • Preliminary studies on compression of interference patterns in electronic holography
  • Photoelectronic principles, components, and applications
  • Design and implementation of computer-generated hologram and diffractive optical elements
  • Catastrophe analysis as the basis for visual perception

Three-Dimensional Holographic Imaging is the most complete survey available of the fundamental topics in the field, ideal for electrical engineers, optical scientists, and advanced CAD/CAM systems engineers engaged in the design and construction of advanced imaging systems.
