About the book

Since the new principle of Gabor on the spherical aberration correction in an electron microscope that was used with the optical laser beams, holography has proven an extremely attractive area of research and has contributed to a plethora of innovative applications in different fields.

For this reason, it is impossible to report all the kaleidoscopic aspects of the holography in a single book. So, this book aims to provide the reader an overview of the current state of development and potentiality of holography in “hot applications areas”, such as biomedical diagnostics, energy efficiency, environment pollution and contamination, security, data storage, 3D metrology. Due to the strong interdisciplinarity of the applications, theoretical and practical aspects of holography are comprehensively described, providing concepts on the optical set-up configurations, recording materials, and elaboration algorithms. The book is intended for researchers interested to increase awareness in the fascinating world of Holography, and its potentiality to facilitate transdisciplinary integration among different fields of the sciences.

About the editor

Giuseppe Coppola

Institute of Applied Sciences and Intelligent Systems

Dr. Giuseppe Coppola received his Electronic Engineering degree, summa cum laude, and his Ph.D. degrees from University “FedericoII”, Napoli (Italy), in 1997 and 2001, respectively. Currently, he is a senior researcher at the Institute for Microelectronics and Microsystems of the Italian National Research Council (CNR). Since 2004, he has been the leader of the optoelectronic Lab of that institute. From 2005 to 2012, he was a contract professor at the University of Calabria. His main research interests concern the development of holographic setups for the non-contact characterization and for writing holographic optical elements. On these topics, he is a tutor for post-doc students, Ph.D. students, and several graduating students. During his research activity, he has collaborated for carrying out several national and/or international research projects. Dr. Coppola has published over 200 papers among peer-reviewed journals and conference proceedings. He has completed 11 book chapters and 11 patents. His H-index is 36, and he has about 4000 citations (Google Scholar). Dr. Coppola is a Senior Member of the IEEE, a member of the Institute Board of the IMM, and is a reviewer for different scientific journals.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Dajana Pemac

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
