    Abstract: A system and method may utilize holography to facilitate fabrication techniques such as 3D printing and lithography. The system may include a light source, a hologram of an original object or lithographic pattern recorded in a holographic medium, and a target such as a reservoir of photosensitive material or a photosensitive material attached to a substrate. Illuminating the hologram with the appropriate light source may cause a holographic image of the original object or lithographic pattern to form on the photosensitive material within the reservoir or on the substrate. Formation of the holographic image may result in the formation of a new object from the photosensitive material, or may facilitate removal or retention of photosensitive material as part of a lithographic process.

  • Patent number: 5764390
    Abstract: A three-dimensional photo mask is formed from a substrate having a first side and a three-dimensional side. A hologram is provided on the first side of the substrate. The three-dimensional side of the substrate has a photosensitive resist material provided thereon. The hologram includes information that defines features to be imaged onto the photosensitive resist material. A method and a system are disclosed for producing the three-dimensional mask.

  • Patent number: 5583668
    Abstract: A technique for fixedly positioning a holographic recording laminate relative to a master hologram including the steps of inducing a electrostatic charge on the holographic recording laminate and positioning the recording laminate in close proximity to the master hologram such that the electrostatic charge on the recording laminate causes a static attraction between the recording laminate and the master hologram that retains the recording laminate in a fixed position relative to the master hologram.

  • Patent number: 4896929
    Abstract: A holographic display module is incorporated into a machine with independently operating subsystems, and used to provide an indication of the status or location of the machine subsystems. In one embodiment, a xerographic copier incorporates a holographic display incorporating an outline of the machine. A liquid crystal panel is aligned with the holographic display and selectively addressed in conjunction with signals from the copier subsystems. An illumination subsystem is optimized to provide diffuse illumination of the display.

  • Patent number: 4790612
    Abstract: A multi-faceted holographic disk can be copied in a one-step process by using a source disk, actually a sandwich of two thin film layers of photosensitive material. The first thin film layer is capable of producing multiple reference beams simultaneously. The second thin film layers is a "master" copy of the disk to be copied. Both layers are produced using known off-axis holographic techniques. A target disk, having an unexposed film of photosensitive material is located ajacent the second thin film layer. The source disk is illuminated with coherent light, preferably in the form of a conical beam with an apparent point of origin on an axis through the common centers of the source and target disks. Several optical elements capable of producing the conical beam are illustrated.

  • Patent number: 4043653
    Abstract: A holograph high resolution contact printer for use in transferring high resolution information, which is in the form of a pattern on a transparency, from the transparency to the light-sensitive photoresist material front surface of a light-recording medium having a light insensitive substrate rear surface, in which the light-sensitive photoresist surface previously has been exposed to a preselected diffraction grating, but the recording medium has not been developed.

  • Patent number: 4032343
    Abstract: A method and arrangement for the production of a rotationally symmetric, non-spherical optical element, in which one or more light beams are directed at a rotating light-sensitive medium, and a fixed opaque shield is situated over the light-sensitive medium to block a portion of the light beams from exposing the medium.

  • Patent number: 3985439
    Abstract: A device for electro-optically, computer-controlled drawing of a plurality of mask patterns in a layer of light sensitive material disposed on a plane of a mask carrier characterized by a source of coherent light, a modulator for modulating the coherent light, a light detector for imposing a row-by-row scanning motion on the beam of light, an objective device for projecting the beam onto a layer of the light sensitive material, optical lenses arranged between the light deflector and the objective device for imaging the output plane of the light deflector onto a plane of the objective which includes an objective lens arrangement for focusing the beam and a multiplier hologram for splitting up the focused beam emerging from the objective lens arrangement into a plurality of identical sub-beams directed in different directions so that the plurality of spaced identical mask patterns are simultaneously formed in a light sensitive layer.

  • Patent number: 3982253
    Abstract: A linear image composition device comprising a beam generator, a first rectangular beam producer for causing the beam generated by the beam generator to be a first parallel light beam with rectangular cross section, a second rectangular beam producer for causing the rectangular beam obtained by the first rectangular beam producer to be a second parallel light beam with rectangular cross section different from that of the first parallel light beam, and a beam condenser to which the parallel light beam with rectangular cross section produced in the record rectangular beam producer is applied.

  • Patent number: 3947085
    Abstract: A method of producing a hologram with an orthoscopic, at least partially real image of an object is disclosed. According to the method, the object is recorded on a first hologram and is then reconstructed from this hologram and recorded on a second hologram. In taking the second hologram, solid objects are situated laterally with respect to the light-wave field reconstructing the object from the first hologram, and the solid objects are included in the second hologram. This technique permits reproduction of an image of the object which is viewable over a greater spatial region than would be the case if the laterally situated solid objects were omitted.

  • Patent number: 3942861
    Abstract: A single flat sheet hologram is provided which when illuminated displays substantially a 360.degree. view of an object space. This is done by recording both left and right hand views of the object space on the single sheet of sensitive material.A flat sheet hologram composed of two emulsions, one recording the left side view and the other the right side view is also claimed. The views on these two holograms are coordinated so as to fix the corresponding points in space.
