Paper Abstract

Some applications of polarized light in holography and optical information processing are reviewed. The holographic applications include polarization contrast, image subtraction, color interferometry and the study of photoelasticity. In optical information processing the applications discussed are real-time optical modulators, photodichroic crystals, Vectograph film, superresolution, polarization gratings and polarization interferometers. Each application is presented in sufficient detail to clearly illustrate how the properties of polarized light are utilized.
