In the last decade, hard X-ray holography using an inside reference point has been developed for the study of 3D atomic arrangements in solids. Two types of this method are used: `normal holography' in which the atoms serve as sources of X-radiation and `inverse holography' in which the atoms detect the interference field originating from the incident and scattered waves. Beside the first two demonstration experiments, there have not been many measurements of this type. The cause of this is that there are serious technical difficulties and evaluation problems, which have to be solved before there can be wider application. Lately, many of these problems have been overcome; so hard X-ray holography became a useful tool for structural studies. Recent developments in the field are discussed and the capabilities of the method are illustrated by examples.
