Paper Abstract

In this paper we present an holographic system based on the properties of optical propagation in birefrigent media. We have called it conoscopic after the conoscopic figures which are obtained when a spherical wave propagating through a birefrigent crystal, is observed through crossed polarizers. The idea can be summarized by saying that we replace the object and reference beams of coherent holography by the ordinary and extraordinary beams propagating in birefrigent media, two beams that are naturally coherent one with the other.
