Holography, the process by which a three-dimensional image can be recorded and later reproduced, was invented in 1947 by physicist Dennis Gabor. Read more:

A month ago I read the following in a book:

Dennis Gabor (1900-1979) invented in 1947 the hologram

Holography, the process by which a three-dimensional image can be recorded and later reproduced, was invented in 1947 by physicist Dennis Gabor.

Consider an object such as a pretty peach.

Holograms can be stored on photographic film as a record of the peach from many viewpoints. To produce a transmission hologram, a beam-splitter is used to divide the Laser light into a reference beam and an object beam. The reference beam does not interact with the peach and is directed toward the recording film with a mirror. The object beam is aimed at the peach. The light reflected off the peach meets the reference beam to create an interference pattern in the film. This pattern of stripes and whorls is totally unrecognizable.

After the film is developed, a 3D image of the peach can be reconstructed in space by directing light toward the hologram at the same angle used for the reference beam. The finely spaced fringes on the hologram film act to diffract, or deflect, the light to form the 3D image.

Today now I read an article to which the above information is helpful. Here some excerpts:

 

Can it be that we live in a holographic universe?

Perhaps we all are holograms, projections from a higher dimensional space? The hypothesis is daring but in the meantime there are experimental indications for a “holographic universe”.

Holograms are photos of an object which mostly are generated by means of laser light. The laser beam scans the object; the information gained is stored on a two dimensional area in the form of a diffraction grid, for instance a photo chemically treated glass plate. When a second, similar laser beam is directed towards the grid, a three dimensional image of the original object comes into being.

The theory of the holographic universe transfers this principle to the entire cosmos.

What would it mean if we really live in a holographic universe? Nothing of course for our everyday life. For that physical thought buildings like certain versions of string theory would find a first confirmation. Out of this physicists could possibly develop a “world formula” which unites gravitation and quantum theory and therefore can describe the universe completely. Nevertheless a peculiar feeling would perhaps remain when our existence would be nothing but an eventful hologram as projection of physical processes which happen at the edge of the universe. Then the question arises namely who is the puppet player who organizes the entire cosmic shadow play.
