Proceedings PaperTechnology Forecast: Commercial Applications Of Holography
|Format||Member Price||Non-Member Price|
This paper attempts to point toward future technological developments that might accelerate the commercial applications of holography. Conference attendees are asked to participate in an "Expert Survey", the purpose of which is to predict what technological advances are expected to bring about new applications of holography, or to significantly improve current applications. In addition, the survey assesses the time frame within which these advances are expected to occur, and describes how these technologies interact with each other. Part One of the paper explains the rationsl for this survey, and solicits the participation of the SPIE conference attendees in structuring the survey format. Part Two -- to be published in the near future -- will present and analysis of the survey results.
