Optical Scanning Holography with MATLAB (R) by Ting-Chung Poon

Optical Scanning Holography is an exciting new field with many potential novel applications. This book contains tutorials, research materials, as well as new ideas and insights that will be useful for those working in the field of optics and holography.

The book has been written by one of the leading researchers in the field. It covers the basic principles of the topic which will make the book relevant for years to come.

This book serves two purposes. The first is to succinctly cover the necessary
mathematical background and wave optics that pertain to Fourier optics and
holography. The second is to introduce optical scanning holography (OSH) -
a form of electronic (or digital) holography - to the readers, and to provide
them with experience in modeling the theory and applications utilizing

Optical Scanning Holography with MATLAB® consists of tutorials (with
numerous MATLAB examples throughout the text), research material, as
well as new ideas and insights that are useful for engineering or physics
students, scientists, and engineers working in the fields of Fourier optics,
optical scanning imaging and holography. The book is self-contained and
covers the basic principles of OSH. Thus, this book will be relevant for years
to come. The writing style of this book is geared towards undergraduate
seniors or first-year graduate-level students in the fields of engineering and
physics. The material covered in this book is suitable for a one-semester
course in Fourier optics, optical scanning imaging and holography.

Optical scanning holography is a highly sophisticated technology that
consists of numerous facets and applications. It is a real-time (or on-the-fly)
holographic recording technique that is based on active optical heterodyne
scanning. It is a relatively new area in electronic holography and will
potentially lead science and technology to many novel applications such as
cryptography, 3-D display, scanning holographic microscopy, 3-D pattern
recognition and 3-D optical remote sensing. The main purpose of this book
is to introduce optical scanning holography to the readers in a manner that
will allow them to feel comfortable enough to explore the technology on their 
own - possibly even encourage them to begin implementing their own
set-ups in order to create novel OSH applications. Optical scanning
holography is generally a simple yet powerful technique for 3-D imaging,
and it is my aspiration that this book will stimulate further research of
optical scanning holography and its various novel applications.

This book incorporated some of the material from this book into my short course
entitled Optical Scanning Holography at SPIE Photonics West, in lectures
given at the Institute of Optical Sciences (IOS), which is now known as the
Department of Optics and Photonics, National Central University (NCU),
Taiwan, and also at the Department of Electronics and Computer Science,
Nihon University, Japan. The book was finally completed during my time as
a visiting professor at Nihon University. I want to take this opportunity to
thank my host, Professor Hiroshi Yoshikawa, for his hospitality and
arranging a spacious office for me that allowed me to concentrate on the last
phase of this book. I would also like to thank Professor Hon-Fai Yau of
NCU for providing me with some early opportunities (when the book was
still in its infancy) to “rehearse” my optical scanning holography lectures at
