This course will explore the fascinating applications of holography. What is holography? It is not merely art; holography encompasses a variety of measurement and recording techniques at the intersection of wave-propagated interference and diffraction. Consequently, it enjoys utility and relevance across physics domains, from low radio frequencies through optical wavelengths, to X-ray and beyond. This course will demystify holography by covering fundamental theory coupled with hands on laboratory sessions. During the laboratory sessions students will create their own computer generated holograms and a traditional optical hologram to take home.
