Ultra-high resolution holograms are now finding commercial and industrial applications in such areas as holographic maps, 3D medical imaging, and consumer devices. This handbook provides complete coverage of real-time colour holographic processes and applications. In addition to discussing the optics and theory behind these holographic systems, the book details laser technologies, recording devices, data acquisition and processing techniques, and materials for reproduction. Leading researchers in the field cover both digital and analogue colour holography as well as real-time displays, CW lasers, and digital holographic printing. • Provides comprehensive coverage of dynamic holography • Includes colour images throughout the text • Discusses data acquisition techniques, hologram materials, and applications
