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. Javidi, an IEEE Fellow, is the Board of Trustees Distinguished Professor at the University of Connecticut, Storrs. Javidi is a Fellow of six other professional societies. His research interests are in 3D optical imaging. He holds a bachelor’s degree from George Washington University, Washington, D.C., a master’s degree and doctorate from the Pennsylvania State University, all in electrical engineering.
