Paper Abstract

The reason of carrying out a special experiment for the purposes of an educational film concerning holography and the preparation of the experiment performed using double pulse holographic equipment have been described. The whole sequence of the chosen phenomenon - the shooting through of an object by a bullet is presented with simultaneous recording of shock waves in the air and deformations of the object. A detailed qualitative analysis of the whole experiment is also given. While working out the final shape of an educational film about holography a problem of finding of a suitable final sequences seemed to be of importance. It is known that the end crowns the work. It was a real problem for us, since the film was meant to provide university students with basic information about holography (its principles, features and possibilities including gas and pulse laser techniques applied to transparent and opaque objects). This film was also intended as a review of main holographic interferometry methods. Thus a sort of summary seemed to be the most desired ending of the film. The spectacular side of the final sequences was equally important. Finally, a Salomonian decision was made to show simultaneously the experiment with phase and opaque objects and the use of double pulse holographic interferometry. We decided to perform the recording of shock waves in the air on the gun bullet and of the deformations of any shot through object.
