Is electronic quantum holography different from holographic data storage? – moogle 20:23, 4 February 2009 (UTC)

Restarting discussion - please comment D O N D E groovily Talk to me 16:54, 12 March 2012 (UTC)

I would say yes. From [1]
In a traditional hologram, laser light is shined on a 2-dimensional image and a ghostly 3D object appears. In the new holography, the 2-dimensional "molecular holograms" are illuminated not by laser light but by the electrons that are already in the copper in great abundance. The resulting "electronic object" can be read with the scanning tunneling microscope.
So there is a different process involved.--Salix (talk): 21:17, 12 March 2012 (UTC)
