Computer Optics and Computer Holography
Moscow: Moscow University Press, 2004
This monograph is dedicated to the now thriving field  flat computer
optics and computer holography. Most of the matematical difficulties
are associated with the solution of inverse problems. The mathematical
models involved include Maxwell's equations, the Fresnel approximation,
and geometric optics approximation. The use of microelectronics
technologies for precision production of the microrelief of optical
elements proved to be a breakthrough idea in the synthesis of flat
optics. Flat optics allows solving a wide range of problems in laser
thermal processing, goods marking, metrology of coherent radiation,
etc. One of its most interesting applications is computer holography.
Compuersynthesized holograms effectively protect securities, bank
notes, plastic cards, consumer goods, etc. against counterfeit. This
book suggests new ideas for the use of flat optics in security
technologies.
The book can be understood by any person having the knowledge of
basic university phisics courses.
