Yann Frauel, Bahram Javidi, Osamu Matoba, Thomas J. Naughton, and Enrique Tajahuerce co-authored a comprehensive survey about the emerging field of computational holographic imaging and image processing of three-dimensional objects. These international and interdisciplinary researchers have come together to provide novel tools and techniques for the processing and analysis of digital holograms. The paper provides an overview of the basics of holographic sensing and imaging, as well as new emerging applications. It describes computational holographic imaging as technology with great potential in a variety of applications including 3D television displays, 3D medical imaging, information security and 3D measurements as well as manufacturing and virtual reality.
Mr. Tajahuerce is an associate professor at Universidad Jaume I, Castelló, Spain. He was a researcher at the Instituto Tecnológico de Óptica (AIDO) in Valencia, Spain and the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at University of Connecticut, Storrs. He holds a bachelor’s degree and a doctorate in physics from the Universidad de Valencia in Valencia, Spain.
