Paper Abstract

Fraunhofer holograms are defined as the interference pattern between a Fraunhofer diffraction pattern and a coherent background. The virtual image under these circumstances is located at an infinite distance from the real image and hence the deterioration of the image is minimized. This work started in 1963 and developed rapidly to field applications of pulsed laser holography for a range of applications involving the determination of particle size dis-tribution in the range from a few microns and upwards and detection of even smaller particles. The principles and application of Fraunhofer holography will be described by reference to various examples.
