An updatable holographic three-dimensional display

Nature 451, 694-698 (7 February 2008)

Holographic three-dimensional (3D) displays1, 2 provide realistic images without the need for special eyewear, making them valuable tools for applications that require situational awareness, such as medical, industrial and military imaging. Currently commercially available holographic 3D displays3 use photopolymers that lack image-updating capability, resulting in restricted use and high cost. 

Centre for scientific visualization

Cenvis Project Finalized

During its period of two years the Centre for Scientific Visualization Project has gone through a series of stages leading to the final establishment of an scientific, interactive  visualization environment . Its upraise started with adaptation of RBI facilities that was organized in order to insure safe, comfortable, dynamic and innovative surroundings were young scientists would be encouraged to foster new ideas and implement them. Facilities were then equipped with a range of 3D visualization technology from autostereoscopic displays to projectors, scanners, printers, data tracking gloves and other creating a platform for future training and development programs. Project ended 1st April 2009.

About the Project

The Center for Scientific Visualization is a project, financed by the 6th EU Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development (FP6), which is seeking to map a new progress step towards the stabilisation and reinforcement of the Western Balkan Countries research potential trough the establishment of the state-of-the-art research and education centre for scientific visualization upon existing e-infrastructure research capabilities of the Centre of Information and Computing of Rudjer Boskovic Institute.
