Holography

Another important optical phenomenon that relies on light interference and diffraction is holography, the process by which holograms (interference patterns) are produced. They find applications in a wide range of areas such as laser eye protection, LCDs, diffractive optical elements, optical processing and data storage. The objective of this section is to cover the material used and their applications. The various technologies will be covered only in outline, with references to more detailed texts as appropriate.
