Paper Abstract

A universal hologram construction layout, which takes advantage of the resonant coherent modes of a laser, is described. A master transmission hologram made with this layout can be used to make transmission, reflection, or rainbow copies with a minimum amount of component movement between exposures of each type of hologram. This saves much of the set-up time normally involved between exposures, thus reducing the cost of each hologram. The theory of resonant axial coherence modes explains how different object and reference beam lengths can still result in bright, efficient holograms.
