'Tales of the Unexpected: Smart Holograms in Crime, Sport and Medicine'
Chris Lowe, Cambridge University

Chris Lowe
Holograms are not just a clever technique for enabling us to print or see 3-D images; there is a new generation of holograms that also behave as miniaturised analytical tools. These new holograms provide eyecatching readouts that will astound, amaze and terrify any would-be criminal; they will delight housewives, househusbands and food companies with ways of ensuring food is bought at its best; they will thrill pharmaceutical companies and the police by giving them a new weapon in the fight against counterfeit products; and even the latest UK tennis hope will be aided in his quest for even greater greatness - through this amazing new holographic technique. Hear from Professor Chris Lowe about the exiting new technology that has the potential to impact most aspects of human activity.
