31 March 1982 Computer Holograms For Optical Testing

Although computer holograms have been discussed often for optical testing, practical constraints on the size of hologram which can be written have prevented widespread use. We report here development of hardware and software to create holograms with fringes as fine as 100 lines /mm with fringe centers absolutely located to 0.25 pm over a diameter of 85 μm. This gives the equivalent of 3.3 x 10 5 points across a diameter.
