This book explains the principles of laser beam interactions applied to the recording, readout, and processing of information-carrying optical waves. It treats both quantitatively and qualitatively the specific effects that appear due to the fine-scale speckle structure of the spatial profile of a laser-originated wave. The basics of the nature, physics, and properties of the speckle fields, as well as the fundamentals of holography and nonlinear optics, are discussed.
