Belgium is probably the most productive holographic nation, insofar as the production of silver-halide material is concerned, and silver-halide is still the workhorse for a very large number of holographic applications, both in display and technical fields. As Ilford ceased production of film material and Kodak produces only on special order, our output per capita is probably a couple of orders of magnitude higher than in any other country in the world. But this does not mean the problems are solved inconsistency between batches and inadequate quality control procedures. Profits remain negligible, as are R & D budgets. There is a little fundamental research on high-sensitive material optimized for transmission Krypton work, due to industrial demand; no product available yet. Only a limited number of other industrial firms are involved in the holographic business. A number of educational groups are doing fine.
