colour holography

Definition: Method of creating a full-colour hologram by using three separate holograms - each representing and projecting a different range of colour - so that reconstruction of the image creates three separate wavefronts, each carrying one of the primary colours. * Some attempts made to combine all three separations in one hologram. * Generally, the procedure is complicated and results are dismal: not to be confused with holograms which give coloured images whose colours are not related to that of the original.
