Paper Abstract

The advantages of narrow spectral width associated with high energy density make the use of lasers attractive for many conventional photographic situations. The effects of both spatial and time coherence on such photographic operations as contact printing, enlarging, etc., will be discussed. The use of coherent light allows a number of unconventional photographic applications to be pursued. The most popular of these presently is the hologram. Some comments on this and other applications will be included.
