Following the advent of holography, a multitude of applications were suggested arising from the ability to reconstruct wavefronts. In holographic interferometry the ability of holograms to reproduce three dimensional images was exploited to obtain for the first time interferograms which revealed displacements of rough surfaces. With recognition of its utility, the interest in holographic interferometry increased rapidly, and at present it is probably the most important application of holography.1–5
