Abstract
Laser holography has been around since the early '60s('). The dazzling displays shown by Leith and Upatniek took the world by storm. Since then, due to fundamental limitations within the field and questionable business expectations of entrepreneurs, the pace of developing slowed down. Nevertheless, steady progress on both technical and business fronts are continuously made. In the '90s, we fully expect the fruition to take place both in the laboratory and the market place. New areas of applications are beginning to emerge, notably with respect to computers and computing, anti-counterfeiting, holographic optical elements (HOE), non-destructive testing (HNDT), multi-color display, high resolution (in space and time) imaging, quality control, and education. What follows is a brief discussion, in the above order, of each of these areas with some reasonable extrapolation of further developments during this decade.
