Holography & Holograms
Updated 12 June 2013
HoloWorld went online in 1994. Today, it is referenced by many web pages and in-print publications. It was created by now semi-retired, American holographer Frank DeFreitas (bio). For over 30 years, holography enthusiasts from around the world continue to make the pilgrimage to his home studio located in Allentown, Pennsylvania. If you need to learn about holograms, you have come to the right place: how-to articles, podcasts, galleries, history, videos, and more. Sit back, relax, and enjoy your browsing. If you like what you see, please share HoloWorld with others.

Its size is just the beginning of what makes it different from every other Bible in the world today. Read more ...
Holography Workshops & Presentations
If you're going to learn about holography, you might as well learn from the author of the world's #1 holography book. Take a hologram or laser arts class at my studio in Allentown, Pennsylvania -- OR -- have a presentation on lasers and holography at your school, home school, or church group. My studio is just "Minutes from Everywhere!" Celebrating 30 years of workshops in 2013.
Taking over one year to complete, ALL AGES will enjoy this 3D photo gallery presentation. Using images from as far back as the 1800's, the birth, life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ is celebrated in twenty+ 3D photos. Safe graphic content for the younger visitor. View 3D Photos...
Who Is Frank DeFreitas?
You wouldn't go into a strangers house, would you? I didn't think so! Web sites are no different! Before you begin your visit here at HoloWorld, take a few minutes to learn about your host (me), and my 30 years of award-winning service to the laser and holography fields of art, science and technology.
This is the original online laser and hologram science learning page for students. Today's youth are the future of this emerging technology. A great resource for home schoolers. Take a quiz at the end of your visit and print a certificate!
Do you like astronomy? Do you like the great planet Saturn? Take a moment to read a fantastic story. It is the extraordinary (and true!) story about having my name on the surface of another heavenly body: Titan, the famous moon of the planet Saturn. It was the first landing ever accomplished in the outer solar system. If you love space, you'll love this story . . . and you'll never look at Saturn the same way again. Read More...

Perfect for reports and homework, this web page gives students of all ages a printable list of what lasers are used for today. Laser technology is all around us in our everyday living. Find out just how much this is true.
3D Gallery (3D glasses needed)
I also enjoy vintage 3D stereo photography. Here is a gallery of 3D photography converted into anaglyphs. You will need red / cyan 3D glasses in order to see these photos in the third dimension.
Memories of Edmund Scientific Co.
Share my memories of the once-great Edmund Scientific factory store in Barrington, New Jersey. In 2012, I will be adding photos of all of my Edmund memorabilia, going back to the 1960's. Includes info. on their famous Light Show Theater. Enjoy!
