Three separate sheets of film that when adhered together form one continuous image (each sheet is a 120-degree hologram); film is placed in a special rotating structure. As structure rotates, viewer sees a 3-D, computer-animated image of a hemoglobin molecule, the perspective and depth of which changes as the structure rotates; each atom is represented by a ball; words at bottom read `Computer Graphics Group, Lawrence Livermore Laboratory'; rainbow-colored image.
Please note that due to the unique challenges of holography as a medium, high-resolution digital images are not available for most items in the holography collection. Please contact us for more information on reproducing images of holograms.
