Paper Abstract

Holographic artists using continuous wave (cw) lasers are restricted to working under vibration isolated studio conditions, with mainly rigid, still subject matter. The pulsed laser increases the artist's scope to include live subjects, together with the possibility of operating outside the studio. The paper gives a state-of-the-art comparison between cw and pulsed holographic practice. Some of the problems and restrictions associated with the use of pulsed lasers are discussed, together with techniques for diffusion and illumination control, maintenance of beam quality, and the use of appropriate photochemistry. The paper will include a short historical background to pulsed holography by artists with some examples of individual work.
