Abstract

The concept of adaptivity in television holography is discussed, and various realizations of adaptivity are presented. In one possible variation, functions of the components of the optical arrangement may be changed to adapt them to measurement conditions. An additional peculiarity of the technique is that reference waves are produced by holographically reconstructed virtual images. A method, believed to be new, is introduced for synthesizing the phase front of the master object beam that is produced by a simple holographic optical element and is used as a smooth or a speckled reference beam in the electronic speckle-pattern interferometer. An adaptive interferometer is presented as a measuring device for various measuring tasks. Selected applications are shown, demonstrating different aspects of adaptivity.
