Hungarian physicist and inventor Dennis Gabor in 1947 never imagined that his quest to improve electron microscope images would lead to a new method of presenting “reality.” Holograms, which mean “total drawing,” are a kind of photographic plate that is obtained by using the light produced by a laser beam. Its current application is expanding wildly, from credit cards to security stickers.What is a hologram and what are they for? Learn more!
Analog holography is a photographic technique that consists of the projection of three-dimensional images by means of light: a laser records a photosensitive film, which projects the image when it receives light of the appropriate intensity and perspective. This technique is difficult to reproduce due to its creation process, which is to cover small plates sensitive to light with a chemical emulsion that helps in refraction and in the definition of the three-dimensional object.
What are holograms for?
Currently its use is very varied, however, holograms as security labels are the most common, due to the growing threats of imitation and the great loss of reputation in the market of some products. Security holograms are designed to combat counterfeiting thanks to their unique optical properties to diffract light and create virtual 3D effects that are impossible to copy with a scanner or photocopier.
Another use of hologram labels is that they also help create a unique and attractive addition to existing product packaging and packaging materials. It has been shown that the customer perceives a higher value in hologram-protected products; in addition, they think that manufacturers who use holograms care more about the quality of the products they produce, and this really is the case.
Main uses of holograms:
- Guarantee seals
- Brand clothes
- Tobacco products
- Event tickets
- Lottery tickets
- Gift certificates
- Car registration
- Document security
- Employee identification badge
- Beauty products
