Abstract : The purpose of this exploratory research was to establish guidelines for the recording and recovering of three-dimensional velocity information utilizing holographic techniques. The form and resolution of the recorded data were established experimentally and theoretically for both plane and spherical wave illumination. A theory was developed for analyzing the Fraunhofer hologram of a single particle in the spatial frequency domain of an optical data processor. General considerations for both electronic and optical data processing of the flow field data are given. (Author)
