The photographic technique of Lippmann dating from the period 1890-1910 is re-examined in the light of recent experience. Modern chemical modulation techniques can create photographic Lippmann layers of remarkable reflectance. In the background there remain many unanswered questions in relation to the bandwidth of the incoherent light recorded in those early experiments. It is reiterated that coherent sources appear to be essential to create the conditions necessary for arbitrary wavefront reconstruction but some success has been achieved in copying holograms using Lippmann techniques together with metallic relief image surfaces.
