|Is it possible to etch a hologram directly on metal?
It would seem like you could apply a photoresist (like is
used to make PCBs) expose it, and develop and etch it, with
the resulting hologram left deposited directly on the metal.
What do you think? Am I crazy?

It would take some work. Embossed plastic is more common.
You would be limited to low diffraction efficiencies.
The jury is still out. :-) 188.8.131.52

resist and etching, perhaps near the scale of old integrated
circuits. I wonder if that technology is available?
I just think it would be -so- cool if I could have a
hologram on the back of my watch! Now, *that's* engraving.
