A novel optical architecture (based on holographic optical elements) for making high speed tomographic measurements is presented. The system is designed for making density or species concentration measurements in a nonsteady fluid or combusting flow. Performance evaluations of the optical system are discussed, and a test phase object has been successfully reconstructed using this optical arrangement.
