Abstract : Holographic interferometry has gained wide acceptance as a nondestructive testing and vibration analysis technique since its introduction in 1965. The report outlines the history of holographic interferometry, describes the holography process, and describes several applications representative of the present state of the art of holographic interferometry that are particularly relevant to underwater acoustics work. Potential future applications are presented for consideration. (Author)
