Welcome to the Holography Forum's Holography Wiki - A Holography FAQ and Database for anyone who makes holograms.
A place to discuss holography
http://holoforum.org/forum is the online discussion vehicle for an eclectic group of holography enthusiasts, experts, amateurs, and professionals. The forum itself is a wealth of information, and new topics for discussion are always welcome. Newcomers are warmly welcomed.
- 09 May 2014 -- Hurray!! The original forum site has returned. Many thanks to the forum administrator for remedying the database problem. Meanwhile, the short-lived forum replica built at the holowiki site will be decommissioned now that the original has returned.
- 08 May 2014 -- Still no response from the site administrator of www.holoforum.org/forum. However, to get things back online, a copy of the forum has been installed on the wiki site. HOLOWIKI.NSS.RPI.EDU/forum is the current site for the holography forum.
- 06 May 2014 -- Not sure what the situation is with www.holoforum.org/forum. I will update the status, here, as information becomes available.
- 02 May 2014 -- The Holography Forum is experiencing temporary technical difficulties. The site administrator has been informed
You may browse the various discussion threads as a guest, and it costs nothing to sign up as a full forum member.
Your host for this Holowiki site is John Fisher, chief volunteer with the honor of being site administrator.
