Two Challenges to Holography: 1. Holographic Electron Microscopy 2. Speckle-Free Illumination

  • Dennis Gabor
Conference paper


I want to challenge experimental physicists to tackle two important and difficult problems. In both cases, a solution is theoretically possible, but the experimental realization will require skills of a very high order.


Rare Earth Metal Interference Fringe Spherical Aberration Extreme Wave Amplitude Transmission
