A holographic method has been developed that uses a single wavelength in the recording process to generate a multicolor image under white light reconstruction. The final product is a superposition of rainbow holograms, each of which is recorded with a specific orientation of the reference beam. The result is that each scene is encoded with a specific color. The image quality is analyzed and compared with that of other rainbow holograms.
