Abstract

It has been assumed that a holographically reconstructed object is seen as though it is the actual object, including that it is seen at the distance of the actual object when it was holographed. A psychophysical experiment was carried out with seven subjects to test this assumption. The results clearly show that the perceived distances of holographically reconstructed objects are not equivalent to the perceived distances of actual objects. Thus a fundamental assumption in holography has not been supported by experimental data.
