Paper Abstract

Methods for applying holographic interferometry in the study of turbulence are described. Examples of the effect of various types of turbulent cells on an optical wavefront are presented. Finally, a relatively new technique in which phase control of the two mixed reconstructed waves is discussed. It is concluded that the technique can ultimately provide an extremely high sensitivity for the viewing of phase objects and can provide the basis of automated data reduction based on heterodyne interferometry.
