Abstract

Holograms of transparencies have been produced in diffused light. The reconstructions are free from flaws and are of a quality comparable to pictures produced by conventional photography with incoherent light. Holograms of three-dimensional scenes have been produced by reflected light. Such holograms produce three-dimensional reconstructions having all the visual properties of the original scene: parallax between near and distant objects, a requirement to refocus the eyes when viewing objects in different parts of the scene, and a stereo effect equal to that of ordinary stereo photography.
