Holograms need a material to record interference fringes. There are many materials that can record fringes.

The cost and exposure energy required is very high so they are not often used for holography. ; [[Embossed Holograms]] : These are like the holograms seen on credit cards. ; [[Gelatin]] : Used as the suspension medium to hold light sensitive particles. ; [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hologram#Materials Wikipedia] : Wikipedia's summary of Holographic Recording Materials . ; [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Periodic_table_%28standard%29 The Elements] : The Periodic Table of the Elements ; [[Books]]
