N.B. Can be made more effective when incorporated in a tamper evident feature, or as an integral part of the primary pack. The public must be carefully informed of the precise nature of the effect to look for, or the technology may be imitated by a cheap approximation which lacks the full effect of the original but is sufficiently similar to fool the average User.
Description A hologram normally incorporate an image with some illusion of 3-dimensional construction, or of apparent depth and special separation. This is an image created without the use of a laser. The underlying structure of the image is written at the microscopic level with an electron beam generator. This type of image can include three dimensional and highly kinetic elements with forensic features within one image. It is highly secure, but commands a high price.
