I for a long time spoke, that if the third parts of that huge (mad) money which have been spent for creating of three-layer photographic process, have been used on development a Lippmann method we would have now at all other technology of color print. But I think, that this historical mistake will be corrected, and the Lippmann method still will show, «where cancers winter»!

I totally agree, I think the Lippmann display is a half way between full 3D holographic posters and ordinary fluoro displays but with a very fine chromatic detail that our vision will delight, is a promising marketing system, security system, etc. Maybe a worth tentative to the marketing to verify.

By the way the double jet used by Darran is a practical way to get few microns emulsion range (you can eventually adapt your HP inkjet printer...) . I wonder if a photopolymer with modulation similar to Polaroid DMP-128 could achieve at least similar results, this emulsion were capable to record reflection holograms in a thin few microns layer with a void mechanism.
