Welcome to the Holography Forum's Holography Wiki - A Holography FAQ and Database for anyone who makes holograms.
A place to discuss holography
Update, 2015-01-05: Ok, well, January 5 may have been a little too ambitious. The new forum site is ready to go, but the domain name system (DNS) still needs to be updated to make the new site accessible.
Announcement: The Holography Forum is moving. After a productive nearly half-decade at holoforum.org, the old site will dim its lights by the end January. To avoid any loss of continuity or (more importantly) content, the forum will relocate sometime on January 5, 2015 to its new home at http://holographyforum.org/forum.
All the current forum's content will be carried over along with the forum archive (the "old forum") and the Lippmann Collection. Everything should look very familiar. The only speed-bump is that you will need to re-register at the new home, but that should be a simple process.
January 5 is the date. It does require the coordination of three individuals' efforts to bring everything together, so an exact time is uncertain. Posts announcing the availability of the new forum will be made to Holoforum and to the Facebook group, "Holography Forum", as soon as everything is in place.
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.
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.
