Ultra-Realistic Imaging may be defined as any imaging technique which is able to record and reconstruct the visible electromagnetic light-field scattered from a real-world object or scene with a resolution better than or equal to that of the unaided human eye. This book is devoted to a discussion of how the goal of ultra-realistic imaging may be attained through the application of the interferential methods of modern analogue and digital holography - and in particular though volume phase holography. Ultra-high resolution holograms are now finding commercial and industrial applications in such areas as holographic maps, 3D medical imaging, and consumer devices. In addition to discussing the optics and theory behind these holographic systems, the book details laser technologies, printer design and recording devices, data acquisition and processing techniques, software algorithms, and materials for reproduction. Leading researchers in the field cover the key holographic technologies underpinning the new field of ultra-realistic imaging.
