There is more to the light that meets the eye, but it is exactly what meets the eye that intrigues us the most. Welcome to the science of holography, spectral imaging and holographic projection. If you are as interested in this subject and topic as I am, then I would like to recommend an extremely informative book on the subject. The title of the book is:
“Principles of holography” by Howard W. Smith, published by Wiley-Interscience, New York, NY, 1969, 239 pages, Library of Congress Number: 69-16129, SBN: 471-08340-2.
The author of this book was a senior research assistant in the Eastman Kodak Company research labs in Rochester New York, and his R&D department was at the forefront of this technology at the time. As you know, Eastman Kodak was very serious about innovation and had invested billions of dollars to maintain its market share at the time. At the time this book was written, it was probably one of the most comprehensive books on the subject of holography.
Today, of course, there is so much more to know, but most of the basics are here, and it’s a good book to start with if you want to learn more about this topic. If you want to learn more about the history of holography, it’s all here too. Likewise, all of the math that comes with projecting holographic images and holography is here as well. The book describes the basic arrangements for holography, including plane holograms and volume holograms, along with the general theory behind each.
There are many mathematical equations for the projection of light, time filters, linear motions, and motion images of oscillatory objects. You will learn how to illuminate with the beam and what happens when you adjust the bandwidth or the recording medium. There is also an analysis of third order aberrations, and the book even goes into Lasers.
Indeed, I have read quite a few books on holography, and even wrote a book on the subject called “Holographic Projection Technologies of the Future – Killer Applications” and so I know a thing or two on the subject. . I can tell you that this is probably one of the best books ever written on the subject, and to think that it was written in 1969 completely blows me away. So I have recommended it to anyone seriously interested in research in spectral imaging or holographic technology.
Everyone should be interested in this topic because in the next five years your iPad, iPhone, smartphone or tablet will allow video conferencing using holograms. This technology will be available soon, and many of the world’s largest companies are now bringing this technology to the forefront. They design chips that will allow this type of communication and the equipment to make it work. Indeed, I hope you will take all of this into consideration and take it seriously. If you have any comments, concerns and / or questions or case studies, please email me as soon as possible.
