Archive of Holoworld:HoloWorld went online on Tue, 04 Dec 1993 21:29:02 GMT (as the Internet Webseum of Holography) during the era of dial-up 14.4 modems and NCSA Mosaic browsers. Chronologically archived copies of the entire HoloWorld web site can be found at the Internet Archive Project. It had been archived 618 times between 5 Nov, 1996 and 7 Dec, 2017. As such, it preceded the Internet Archive itself by nearly three years: | 1996 | 1997 | 1998 | 1999 | 2000 | 2001 | 2002 | 2003 | 2004 | 2005 | 2006 | 2007 | 2008 | 2009 | 2010 | 2011 | 2012 | 2013 | 2014 | 2015 | 2016 | 2017 |
"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.
