Abstract : Fiber light guides are used in conjunction with holographic interferometry. A Michelson interferometer was constructed to test for temporal coherence of light passing through fiber optics. A finite-fringe hologram of a no-flow condition was taken to prove the feasibility of applying fiber optics to this field of flow investigation. The effect of opaque bodies on interferometric data inversion was sought. Two schemes for replacing the missing fringe data were used to see if the accuracy of the calculated density fields could be enhanced. (Author)
