Paper Abstract

Many technical advances have been made since the invention of holography in 1947, lasers circa 1960 and holographic interferometry in 1965, which have led to widespread use of holographic interferometry in the fields of nondestructive testing and structural development. This paper reviews some of these developments from the early days when the holographic tire tester was born to the current times of computer aided holometry. This is both a historic as well as a technical overview as seen from the authors' perspective and involvement since circa 1966. References are provided for the key technical publications, but only a small selection of the slide material is included in this paper.
