Projects

Students may produce a variety of holograms including two-beam transmission, focused-image, reflection, rainbow, and stereogram portraits. Applications of holography can also be explored such as optical image processing, optical data storage, and the use of holographic interferometry for structural disturbance analysis or vibrational analysis. Students will work in groups of three setting up the holography equipment and exposing the film. Each student should know how to set up the equipment, expose the film, and develop the film for a transmission and reflection hologram. Students should also be prepared to display transmission and reflection holograms.
