Paper Abstract

During the last national meeting of the Holographic Club of the French Optical Society held at SAUMUR, 22-23 November 1990, on `Vibration analysis with the help of holographic and associated methods,' more than 80% of attendees were industrialists. Some scientists who specialized in coherent optics said that it is not necessary to be an optician to use holography in the industry. That means that veritable progress has been achieved since the discovery of holographic interferometry in 1965. But, on the other hand, too few industrialists use holographic techniques. This paper critically examines the evolution of holographic interferometry through concrete examples and shows that hopes of industrial uses of holography are more credible today than yesterday because of new developments expected in hardwares (lasers, recording materials, etc.) and softwares.
