24 October 1984 Geometric Modeling With Image Plane Integral (IPI) Holography
Author Affiliations +
Holography has long been considered to be an ideal method of visually presenting three-dimensional data which has been either experimentally acquired or mathematically calculated with a preconceived form in mind. Unfortunately, holograms have not had the image quality and accuracy to gain scientific acceptability outside the field of interferometric analysis. This paper will describe the use of an advanced composite holographic technique to give a clear, autostereoscopic image of a computer designed automotive part and a computer graphics concept of a molecule. The holograms were manufactured using Image Plane Integral (IPI) holography on an Argon laser printer designed and built by the author. The final holograms exhibited bright, achromatic, real images with high resolution and a minimum amount of controllable distortion. Additionally, because the IPI method uses a 35mm microfilmstrip for input, it could be universally applied as a hard copy format for presentation of almost any type of three-dimensional data base.
