The article provides information on holograms, a technology used to prevent imitation of passports, green cards and other forms of ID. According to the author, holograms are not only for prevention of counterfeits, but as well as used to detect the fake from the genuine. He adds that the personalized photopolymer holograms, are the key to the future development of hologram technology. Other information related to holograms are also mentioned.
