Abstract : An introduction to coherent optics and holography is presented. A discussion of the application of lasers in aerodynamics is presented and examples taken from many different laboratories are included. The use of lasers to complement conventional optical methods is reviewed while more advanced techniques are presented in greater detail. These include new methods in interferometry, holography, and laser Doppler techniques.
