Basics of Holography is a general introduction to the subject written by a leading worker in the field. It begins with the theory of holographic imaging, the characteristics of the reconstructed image, and the various types of holograms. Practical aspects of holography are then described, including light sources, the characteristics of recording media and recording materials, as well as methods for producing different types of holograms and computer-generated holograms. Finally, important applications of holography are discussed, such as high-resolution imaging, holographic optical elements, information processing, and holographic interferometry. The book includes comprehensive reference sections and appendices summarizing some useful mathematical results. Numerical problems with their solutions are provided at the ends of chapters. This is an invaluable resource for advanced undergraduate and graduate students as well as researchers in science and engineering who would like to learn more about holography and its applications in science and industry.

Industry Reviews

' ... this book covers both the fundamental principles of holography and an overview of many important holographic applications, with a good balance between theory and practice ... an excellent starting point for anyone wishing to become familiar with the holographic discipline.' Dr. Donald H. Barnhart, The Industrial Laser User
"...a good collection of basic information on holography with many references that the reader can use to obtain more detail." COLOR
"Hariharan offers a snapshot review of the principles, techniques, and applications of optical holography in a brief descriptive treatment for those seeking an overview of the subject... The book is well-illustrated, references and worked-out examples are included; relevant mathematical information is summarized in four appendixes." Choice
