A unified, comprehensive, self-contained treatment of theory, practice, and application, including related coherent optical techniques. Emphasizes quantitative evaluation of holographic interferograms of both opaque and transparent objects, explaining how tools such as the laser and holography are being applied to present-day measurement problems. Applies clear, simple, physical reasoning to present practical information and data; circumvents complicated mathematics wherever possible. Includes over 700 cited references, numerous line drawings and photographs, and several useful tables and equations relating optical data to physical properties.
