THE INDEX

This INDEX to the site of the HOME + STUDIO of E. WESLY & SONS encompasses the whole site, which could also be a considered a compendium of topics in optics, holography, photography, art, and education.

There are other sources on the Web, but these are my own working impressions, from experience, mainly at the School of Hard Knox.  This site is not intended to be a be-all and end-all for the art, science, and technology of holography, but I am proud to say that there is more useful information of a higher quality here than in a variety of holography books, forums, and wikis, although this labor of love is far from complete.
Some links go directly to classroom handouts or papers, or sometimes to a sub-index page with a variety of links on the topic.  Once in a great while there is a link to an outside site when it is considered necessary or appropriate.

These resources come from classroom handouts I had written for classes taught at Gallery 1134, Lake Forest College Holography Workshops, Columbia College, The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and Harrington College of Design.  Their origin is noted when hovering over the link. For a look at them in the context for which they were created, go here for the Gallery 1134 Handouts, Instruction Manual for Room B013 for those from SAIC, and here for the Optics Classes. Titles of published or unpublished papers are in quotation marks.

The earliest ones pre-date the dawn of the personal computer age, and were typed on a typewriter, titled with rub-off Letrasets, with illustrations hand drawn or literally cut and pasted graphics.  Later ones were typed on a computer in WordPerfect 4.2 or 5.1, but still retained cut and pasted graphics as flatbed scanners were not common at that time.  The latest ones are products of the 21st century, and take advantage of all the bells and whistles Adobe and Microsoft afford us.  Hopefully someone will find them useful!

The shortcut ctrl + w or cmd + w will be helpful in closing the windows when you are finished reading them.
