Post-secondary photonics lab: simplified portrait holography

Paper Abstract

Teaching photonics is greatly enlivened by demonstrations of practical holography. One of the more impressive varieties of display holography is the portrait hologram. However, the large number of complicated, time-consuming steps required to produce traditional portrait holograms makes it an unlikely process for demonstration and practice in a classroom laboratory environment. This paper presents a process for producing simple portrait holograms using the Denisyuk single-beam (Deep Hologram) method and a single stereoptic pair of images, which can be performed, start-to-finish, in a standard 3-hour lab period. Possibilities for expansion of the technique to larger numbers of images, potentially approaching the quality of multiple-image, master hologram-transfer hologram traditional portrait holography, as well as strategies for multiple and single beam illumination are discussed.
