Teaching holography: holography as a teaching tool
Author(s): Nils H. Abramson

Paper Abstract

The holo-diagram is a diagram originally designed as a tool for teaching the making and evaluation of holograms. It was soon found to include much more general uses than first expected. During the 20 years since its introduction we have applied this diagram to explain many different fields such as holography, interferometry, diffraction. Fermat's principle, light-in-flight recordings, threedimensional measurements with ultrashort lightpulses and the special theory of relativity.
