This 1996 book is a greatly expanded edition of what has become one of the best known introductions to the principles, techniques and applications of optical holography. Where necessary, existing sections have been updated, and two new chapters have been added. After presenting the theory of holographic imaging and the various types of holograms, practical aspects of holography are then covered, as are the production of holograms for display, colour holography and computer generated holograms. A variety of the applications of holography are then discussed in detail, such as high resolution imaging, information storage and processing, vibration analysis, and holographic interferometry. Containing more than 1000 selected references, this book will be invaluable to anyone wishing to learn more about optical holography, as well as to established researchers and engineers in this field.

'[The book] will appeal to a wide audience, from those embarking on a serious study of holography to the established researcher who will use it as a reference text.' Nature
'This book assumes only undergraduate training in science or engineering; anyone wishing to learn more about optical holography, as well as established researchers and engineers in this field, will find it invaluable. I can recommend this book as an useful, clearly-written and up-to-date study of the today holography.' P. Farner, Optik
