About the author
Michael was born on an insignificant little blue-green planet orbiting an unregarded yellow sun out in the unfashionable backwaters of the western spiral arm of the galaxy and is a computer programmer currently working in the games industry. He has been interested in holography and has been making holograms since 1984, with a few long breaks for Real Life. He hopes to soon take over the world by combining his experience in 3D graphics with holography.

About the author
Michael is a physicist who became interested in holography around 1983. He was co-founder and Technical Business Director of Voxel—a company which developed and patented the concept of multiple exposure Digital Holograms (Voxgrams) for medical applications. He was awarded US patent number 6123733 for the simulation of Voxgrams on desktop computers. He has a strong interest in visual perception.

The development of direct-write digital holography* – Part 2

Following just a few simple rules anyone can shoot a parallax sequence on film or video that can be directly converted into a hologram image. The first consideration is that the motion must be going in the correct direction in order to yield positive stereoscopic parallax in the hologram. The reason for this is very simple: one’s left eye must be presented with the left image and the right eye must see an image in the sequence that is to the right of the first image.

About the author
After graduating in 1973 in Applied Chemistry he worked in a company with dichromated gelatin, unrelated to holography. In ’77, he was amazed to see a holographic pendant made using the very material he was researching. His life ‘changed for ever’. He subsequently worked on photopolymer materials for Ilford, which became the subject for an MPhil at Wolverhampton Polytechnic. Since ’91 he has been involved in ‘blue sky’ research at the Institute of Biotechnology in Cambridge, UK. Jeff is the recipient of the Royal Photographic Society’s Saxby award for 2003
