Hello, my name is Frank DeFreitas ...
Now retired (as of 2017), I have had a long and very rewarding 35 years working within the NOBEL PRIZE- winning fields of LASERS and HOLOGRAPHY.
Holograms provide us the visual opportunity to display entire three- dimensional images via a two- dimensional surface. As such, holography is perfect for graphic arts education.
Holography also provides students with a valuable opportunity of *combining* art, science and technology -- all wrapped up in one -- utilizing the most advanced visual imaging technology in the world today. Have a look around ... and learn about laser holograms and their many applications in the 21st Century and beyond.
TABLE OF CONTENTS:
Holograms, Light and the Word of God: Energy and power are contained in the light spoken into existence by Jesus Christ on Day One of Creation. He is the awesome and powerful Creator of the universe. This paper / lesson shows the connection between holograms, light, and the Word of God.
This is my 2017 investigation into creating holograms of fabric fibers of the Shroud of Turin. These holograms could then be duplicated, and sent to labs around the world for examination under 3D stereoscopic microscopes. My research with microscopical holography earned an invited presentation to the New York Microscopical Society in 2017.
Babylon. Persia. Assyria. Jerusalem. Antioch. 3D laser holograms of ancient Biblical artifacts document the historical events of the Holy Bible.
The "Lord's Prayer" has been the reference standard for micro miniaturization for over 150 years. Here is my attempt at the world's smallest via lasers and holograms: a Lord's Prayer written entirely in the area the diameter of a human hair (less than 100 microns).
The Bible of the future will rely on the Nobel prize-winning achievements of lasers and holographic data storage. This hologram contains the entire King James Bible -- 1,245 individual pages, and 773,746 words in the area the size of a snowflake.
In 2016, wood and artifacts from a world-famous expedition to Mt. Ararat in search of Noah's Ark was brought to my holography laboratory. These are the photos and notes reporting on making 3-dimensional laser holograms of the objects. Could this truly be wood from Noah's Ark?...
Long before laser holography, there were many varied 3D imaging technologies that celebrated the life of Jesus Christ. Wonders of the Bible holds what may be the largest collection of Christian 3D imaging science and technology in the world today.
