HOLOGR APHY HOLOGR APHY and the Laser
The invention of the hologram actually predates that of the
laser, but they both came of age during the technological
boom of the 1960s. Holography has not matched the
growth of some laser applications, but if you look in your
pocket or purse, you will find it is alive and well.
