Paper Abstract

Your editor was fortunate to have an interview with the man who, along with Emmett Leith and Juris Upatnieks at the University of Michigan, was responsible for the rebirth of holography in the early 1960s. Professor Denisyuk is seldom seen in the West so I would like to share parts of the conversation that I had with him at the Volvilov Optical Institute, Leningrad, this October 1982. He is a vigorous and enthusiastic man with a great deal of personal charm. Our conversa-tions were of special interest to me because they supported my suspicion that truly great scientists are not merely smarter and harder working than the rest of us, but also are skilled at formulating both questions and answers in starkly simple ways.
