Audiologists are in need of sophisticated analysis equipment with nanometer resolution that will provide comprehensive data with full field of view imaging of the ear's tympanic membrane. Technology capable of providing this data will significantly improve the treatment of patients. This report details the mechanical design and fabrication of a laser holographic otoscope created to meet these needs. The image quality from the constructed device has been validated and is being used in a real medical research environment to investigate different species of tympanic membranes, including that of humans.
