Named collection: Holography Collection
Object type: hologram
Maker: Polaroid Corporation
Date made: circa 1982
Materials: reflection hologram; film (photopolymer)
Measurements: 15 1/2 in x 10 1/2 in
Plastic sheet to which is adhered 23 identical photopolymer holograms, in 6 horizontal rows of 4 holograms each, except for the bottom row, in which the right hologram has been cut off; each hologram shows a goldish-green 3-D model of a molecule (balls on sticks); the ball nearest the foreground appears to break the image plane; a diagram of the molecule appears in the background.
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.
