Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Optical scanning holography (OSH) is an emerging area of interest with many potential novel applications, such as 3-D pattern recognition, 3-D microscopy, 3-D cryptography, and 3-D optical remote sensing.

Optical Scanning Holography with MATLAB® introduces readers to the latest advances of electronic (or digital) holography and succinctly covers the necessary mathematical background and wave optics that pertain to Fourier optics and holography. The reader is guided through modeling of the theory and applications utilizing MATLAB®. Optical scanning holography is explained in a manner that enables readers to begin implementing their own setups for novel OSH applications.

Optical Scanning Holography with MATLAB® consists of tutorials (with numerous MATLAB® examples throughout the text) and research material, as well as new ideas and insights for graduate students, scientists, and engineers working in the fields of Fourier optics, optical scanning imaging, and holography.

Format: Hardcover
The title of the book suggests that this is a monograph on a very specialized topic. However, surprisingly, its first two chapters cover some of the basics of mathematics and Fourier optics in such a clear way that, in my opinion, it would be useful even for undergraduates in physics or engineering to understand. The rest of the chapters of course go into "Optical scanning holography." The author takes time to explain optical scanning concept, basic holography concept and finally the combination of the two concepts constituent optical scanning holography. The book also contains some of the recent topics of applications using optical scanning holography and researchers in the area of optical scanning, image science and holography should find some useful insights and ideas that could be helpful for their own research.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The good:
I read this book because I've always had an interest in computational holography, but have no background in optics apart from what I picked up in a college Physics course. The first couple of chapters were a good enough introduction to Fourier optics that I was able to follow along, even with my limited background. The examples in the book are clear and straightforward, and work in FreeMat with minimal modification.
The bad:
The last chapter really feels tacked-on, and doesn't contain as much useful information as the previous chapters. Also, the book is fairly short considering its cover price; I wouldn't recommend buying it new, because its scope really doesn't justify the price.
