Until now, fiber optic holography has been restricted by the unavailability of adequate optical fibers and required launching and control equipment. The introduction of anti-reflective (AR) coated single mode optical fibers and user friendly optical fiber handling equipment will revolutionize holography. There are, however, theories and concepts that must be understood to take full advantage of the speed and versatility of optical fiber holography. This paper will discuss: the care and handling of optical fibers, the equipment required, the theory and operation of fiber optic handling equipment, and the techniques required to make a hologram with optical fiber transmitted light.
