Paper Abstract

We thought it was time to bring the readers of Optical Engineering up to date on the new developments in holography, as was done exactly five years ago with the September/October 1975 special issue. The seeds for this special issue were sown during the 1978 Gordon Conference on Coherent Optics and Holography held at the Miramar Hotel in Santa Barbara, California. The conference clearly demonstrated, through the discussion of many interesting research and development applications, that holography is alive and well. For example, artists have discovered holography as a new medium and there is a museum for displaying new holographic developments and inventions. In addition to the opening of the New York museum where artists and patrons are thoroughly enjoying holography, the past five years have witnessed the publication of the Handbook of Optical Holography, continuing issues of the Acoustical Holography proceedings, the gathering of scientists to exchange ideas at three Gordon Conferences in 1976, 1978, and 1980, and the SPIE conference on holography held in Los Angeles in February 1980.
