Passing of Extraordinary Holographer

It is with sadness that I share the news of the death of Yuri Denisyuk, one of the world's most important and innovative holographers.

One of his inventions shares his name, the easy-to-make "Denisyuk hologram," (in-line reflection hologram) which was J-Fav's and my first hologram.

(The late) Steve Benton's MIT lecture notes [PDF] on the topic.
