Lesson Flashcards: Holography Physics

Playback beam

The beam that is incident on a holographic plate on which a holographic plate recording has been made

Holographic plate recording

The interference pattern produced on a holographic plate by an object beam and a reference beam

Object beam

The beam reflected from an object of which a holographic recording is made

Illumination beam

The beam from a coherent light source that is incident on an object when making a holographic recording of the object

Holographic image

The virtual image produced by the diffraction of a playback beam by a holographic plate recording

Reference beam

The part of the illumination beam that is transmitted by the beam splitter when making a holographic recording

Beam splitter

An optical component that partially transmits and partially reflects incident light
