Paper Abstract

Holographic flow field analysis has been applied in a crystal growth experiment conducted on NASA's space shuttle program on Spacelab-3 during April 29 - May 6, 1985. The experimental holograms taken during the crystal growth process are reconstructed into interferograms and later digitized to give refractive-index fields: A comparison has been made with theoretically computed interferograms.
