holography

ho·log·raph·y

(hō-lŏg′rə-fē)
A method of making a three-dimensional image of an object by using a divided beam of light from a laser. The laser light is directed by mirrors so that one beam reflects off the object onto a photographic plate or film while the other beam is aimed directly at the plate or film. The two beams are combined to form a three-dimensional image of the object.

holography

a technique for producing a three-dimensional photographic representation, recorded on film by a reflected laser beam of a subject illuminated by part of the same laser beam.
