Crystallization is one of the most ancient and interdisciplinary topics of research known to mankind. Crystals can be organic or inorganic and may be produced from melts, liquid solutions, vapors or even in solid state. Notwithstanding its inherently high complexity, the crystallization process is part of our everyday lives, from ice making in our homes to the most state-of-the-art chemical and electronic industry.
The book “Holograms –Recording Materials and Applications” comprises five sections.
The first section has eight chapters on holographic recording materials including ionic
liquids in photopolymerisable materials (Chapter 1), Norland optical adhesive 65® as
holographic material (Chapter 2), porous glass and polymer nanocomposite (Chapter 3),
amorphous chalcogenide films (Chaper 4), azo-dye containing materials (Chapter 5 and
6) and photochromic materials (Chapter 7 and 8). The remaining four sections are
dedicated to a variety of holographic applications....
