In this new edition of Holographic and Speckle Interferometry the authors have taken the opportunity to expand considerably the material on applications and to include a more coherent description of a wider range of such applications. This revision reflects the rapid increase in the uses made of the basic technique that has occurred over the past few years. In addition, the bibliography has been updated to include relevant papers published since the first edition appeared.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
' … excellent coverage of the necessary optical background and geometrical analysis …' American Scientist

' … excellent exposition of the subject …' The Times Higher Education Supplement

' … clearly written … and can be recommended …' Contemporary Physics

' … a valuable addition to the library …' Optics and Laser Technology

Analyzes the principles of techniques that use lasers to make non- contacting field view measurements of rough surfaces at visible-light wavelengths. The techniques have application in such areas as strain and vibration analysis, flow visualization, non-destructive testing, and metrology. The second edition (first, 1983) includes an updated bibliography and more case studies of applications. Designed as both a text and laboratory manual for advanced undergraduate and graduate students in coherent optics or interferometry, and as an introduction for scientists and engineers. Paper edition (unseen), $27.95. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
