Paper Abstract

A holographic image dot-matrix printing system is described. The initial image to be printed is first loaded into the computer memory by any of the existing methods (scanner, CCD camera, etc.) or synthesised by the computer. This image can then be edited or corrected both in colours and structure with specially designed software. The resulting hard copy (holographic image) is printed as on the conventional matrix printing device. The only difference is that instead of pins the "writing lightpen" is used to record (print) the dots on the light sensitive material. Each dot of the complete image is modulated by a periodic structure (holographic grating). An advantage of the following system is because the nickel shim can be directly removed from the surface relief generated on a high resolution silver halide material.
