Theoretical Analysis of a Standing Wave in an Air Column Using Holographic Interferometry
Kevin J. Graves
Dr. Ian Lindevald, Faculty Mentor

Holographic interferometry has been used at Truman to study the modal shapes of vibrating objects, such as a singing wine glass or a vibrating clarinet reed, and could be effective in exploring standing waves in air columns. The system under study can either be vibrated during exposure, leading to time-average holography or it can be vibrated during viewing, leading to real-time holography, both of which can be explained with a simple model. Using this model and the constraints of the equipment available, the possibility of imaging normal modes in either the real-time or time-average holograms of the standing wave in an air column can be determined.
