Speckles are inherently an interference phenomenon produced when an optically rough surface or a turbulent medium introduces some degree of randomness to a reflected or a transmitted electromagnetic field. Speckles are often nuisance in coherent image formation. Speckle patterns are however a useful tool for displacement and deformation as well as vibration and stress analysis. The development of speckle photography to speckle interferometry and digital holographic interferometry is described in this paper.
