Paper Abstract

Recent improvements in solid state CW lasers, recording materials and light sources (such as LED lights) for displaying color holograms are described. Full-color analogue holograms can now be created with substantially better image characteristics than previously possible. To record ultra-realistic images depends on selecting the optimal recording laser wavelengths and employing ultra-fine-grain, silver-halide materials. The image quality is improved by using LED display light with improved spatial coherence. Recording museum artifacts using mobile holographic equipment is described. The most recent recorded such holograms (referred to as OptoClones™) are the Fabergé Eggs at the Fabergé Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia.
