Abstract

This paper reports an analytical study to determine the stability requirements for a holographic system intended for the NASA Space Shuttle. The primary emphasis is on optimization of the holographic geometry to minimize the effect of film variations between hologram exposure in space and wave-front reconstruction on the ground. It is shown that it is extremely important to use a balanced geometry (equal reference and object beam angles) and, if possible, a specific object beam angle.
