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. Frauel teaches in the post-graduate program in computer science and engineering at the Universitat Nacional Autonama de Mexico, and worked as a trainee engineer with the Atomic Energy Commission in France. He earned his master’s degree in optics from the École Supérieure d’Optique-SupOptique, Orsay, France and a doctorate in optics and photonics from the Institut d’Opticque-Université Paris XI, Orsay, France.
