Abstract

The modified holodiagram is used to solve and visualize in a graphical way a number of problems that are important for the evaluation of ultrahigh-speed recordings. A simplified diagram is introduced to explain the focusing effect of fast-moving light sources or observers. The diagram is used to show the distortion of an orthogonal coordinated system to simplify the study of apparent deformations of arbitrary shaped rigid objects. These distortions are compared with those of pulse fronts or wave fronts of light observed with holographic light-in-flight recordings.
