"Learning is more interesting when you are doing something hardly anyone else in the world is doing."
Hello, my name is Frank DeFreitas ...Now retired (as of 2017), I have had a long and very rewarding 35 years working within the Nobel prize- winning fields of lasers and holography.
Holograms provide the graphic artist an opportunity to display entire three- dimensional images via a two- dimensional surface. As such, holography is perfect for graphic arts and communication technology education.
Holography also provides students with a valuable opportunity of *combining* art, science and technology -- all wrapped up in one -- utilizing the most advanced visual imaging technology in the world today. Have a look around ... and learn about laser holograms and their many applications in 21st Century graphic arts and communication technology.
Lasers, Holography and Photonics Primer: Here is a great PDF student study guide that you can read and / or download to help with your understanding of lasers, optics, and holography. It also contains history and bios of some of the early researchers in the field. You may use it for homework assignments. Please give credit to holoworld.
