  Holography - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Holography (from the Greek, Όλος-holos whole + γραφή-graphe writing) is the science of producing holograms; it is an advanced form of photography that allows an image to be recorded in three dimensions.
Holography was discovered over Easter, 1947 by Hungarian physicist Dennis Gabor (1900–1979), for which he received the Nobel Prize in physics in 1971.
The difference between holography and photography is best understood by considering what a fl and white photograph actually is: it is a point-to-point recording of the intensity of light rays that make up an image.

Holography using laser light was developed during the early 1960s and has had several applications.
In research, holography has been combined with microscopy to extend studies of very small objects; it has also been used to study the instantaneous properties of large collections of atmospheric particles.
Another new technique is acoustical holography, in which the object is irradiated with a coherent beam of ultrasonic waves (see sound; ultrasonics); the resulting interference pattern is recorded by means of microphones to form a hologram, and the photographic plate thus produced is viewed by means of laser light to give a visible three-dimensional image.

 History of  the holography   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-07)
Holography dates from 1947, when British (native of Hungary) scientist Dennis Gabor developed the theory of holography while working to improve the resolution of an electron microscope.Gabor coined the term hologram from the Greek words holos, meaning "whole," and gramma, meaning "message".
In 1962 they read Gabor's paper and "simply out of curiosity" decided to duplicate Gabor's technique using the laser and an "off-axis" technique borrowed from their work in the development of side-reading radar.
Denisyuk's approach produced a white-light reflection hologram which, for the first time, could be viewed in light from an ordinary incandescent light bulb.

 Holography, Laser Holography
In holography, the aim is to record complete wave field (both amplitude and phase) as it is intercepted by a recording medium.
He introduced a two step lensless imaging process known as wavefront reconstruction technique or holography (Greek word holos means whole, complete), in which an interference between the object field and the background wave (known as reference wave) is formed and recorded on a photographic material.
Thus, in holography an interference between the light reflected and scattered by the object, called the object (signal) beam and a reference beam is created and recorded on a photographic emulsion.

Quantum holography, on the other hand, is a method firmly grounded in modern physics that permits the imaging of hidden objects with entangled photons.
Of the quantum entanglement phenomena that Einstein described as "spooky action at a distance," quantum holography may be the spookiest to date.
In quantum holography, the researchers measure the simultaneous arrivals of an illuminating photon that is sent into the chamber and a companion photon in the other entangled beam.

Holography is "lensless photography" in which an image is captured not as an image focused on film, but as an interference pattern at the film.
The coherent light from the laser is split to form an object beam and a reference beam.
It is as if the light from the object was frozen in the film, and then continues to your eye when reconstructed with the laser light.

Neutron holography with atomic-scale resolution has been performed, for the first time, with an "inside-detector" approach.
Holography generally includes a source of illuminating waves, an object to be imaged, and a detector or film in which waves direct from the source interfere with waves scattered from parts of the object.
The interference pattern, stored in the detector medium, is later read out (and a 3D image of the object viewed) by sending waves into the detector.
