HOLOGRAPHY...No other media in the world can match the three dimensional, high fidelity images of REAL laser holography. Holograms provide a nano-resolution, ultra- realism that is unequaled with any other 21st century imaging technology. Holograms provide a way to accurately "duplicate" whatever has been recorded, as if the object were right in front of you. A Nobel prize in physics was awarded to Dr. Dennis Gabor in 1971 for his work in what would become known as holography.
According to the journal Leonardo (MIT Press), holography issue vol. 22, no. 3/4, the definition of holography is as follows: "The process of recording a reflected, or calculated*, optical wavefront off the surface of an object that, upon reconstruction, yields a high-fidelity, three-dimensional image that contains all the spatial information of the object recorded."
I wrote the above definition for the journal issue (along with other laser and holography related definitions), as a member of the glossary team (*calculated has been added to include digital rendering technologies).
Holoworld.com is dedicated to presenting lasers, holography and holograms in an accurate light. It is a web site for students, amateurs, hobbyists and educators. I like to call it "holography for the rest of us".
My web site is a well-known destination, and has been online for over 20 years.
