Digital Holography & 3-D Imaging (DH)

Digital Holography & 3-D Imaging (DH)

25 - 28 July 2016
Kongresshaus Stadthalle Heidelberg, Heidelberg, Germany

The Digital Holography and Three-Dimensional Imaging meeting provides a forum for science, technology, and applications of digital holographic, and three-dimensional imaging and display methods. Topic areas include interferometry, phase microscopy, novel holographic processes, 3D and novel displays, integral imaging, computer generated holograms, compressive holography, full-field tomography, and holography with various light sources including coherent to incoherent and X-ray to terahertz waves.  This is a highly inter-disciplinary forum with applications in biomedicine, biophotonics, nanomaterials, nanophotonics, and scientific and industrial metrologies.
