This volume provides broad coverage of technological applications of holography, a three-dimensional imaging technique. The contributors comprise an internationally renowned group of research leaders who bridge the gap between academic research and industrial applications. The various sections include discussions of holographic materials and equipment, nondestructive testing, and applications to artificial intelligence. The techniques and applications discussed are new and expanding and have not been previously published in book form. The book will be of interest to academic and industrial researchers in optics electrical engineering, and physics. Industrial laboratories involved in optical work (lasers, fire optics) and nondestructive testing will also find this book more
