The papers in this special section examines digital holography for industrial applications. When optical holography was invented, it was basically intended for recording the three-dimensional (3-D) images of physical objects on high resolution photographic films. Although there are some other applications, they are still rather limited as the content of an optical hologram is permanently recorded and cannot be modified to represent another object. The rapid advancement of computing technology in the past three decades has enabled holograms to be generated numerically with computers and distributed as digital holographic data.
