acoustical holography


acoustical holography
acoustical holography,
holography that uses sound waves instead of laser light to produce a three-dimensional picture: »

Hence, a hologram can be recorded with sound waves and then reconstructed with light. This technique is called acoustical holography (Science Journal).
