UAE Landmarks To Turn Holograms Soon

UAE Landmarks To Turn Holograms Soon

The study of light, known as Photonics, has various applications, including LED, VR, Holograms, high-speed internet, and solar panels.

View UAE's historic sites like the Qasr Al Hosn or Sharjah museums worldwide as holograms. This is what a holography expert is wanting to achieve.

Dr. Ajith Kumar PT, who recently chaired one of the country's first conferences on photonics, said such a project would immortalize the UAE and its contributions to the Islamic culture. "I have been passionate about cultural archiving, and I think there is a huge scope in the UAE," he said. "The country's museums and cultural sites have a good collection of Islamic history. These can be turned into holograms and immortalized so that anyone from anywhere in the world can look at them. It will immortalize the region's contributions. We have approached concerned authorities "to make this dream possible.

Dr Ajith Kumar, a laser holography scientist, was in the country for the inaugural Photonics Middle East conference that drew scientists and researchers from around the world. "The UAE is at the forefront of innovations of all kinds, and this is the time for the country to ride the photonics wave," he said. "With its futuristic outlook, I think the government will be able to harass it to their benefit and possibly even become a global epicenter of innovation in this field." Photonics is the study of light and has numerous applications, including LED, VR, Holograms, high-speed internet, and solar panels, among other things.

Future Outlook

As per Dr Ajith, he has an ambitious vision for holograms in Dubai. "With so many celebrities visiting the country daily, I hope to establish a holography studio in the emirate," he said. "Any time anyone comes here, we can convert a picture of them into a hologram, a lasting keepsake. This studio could become a global tourism center where holograms of all world leaders who have visited Dubai are achieved."

He also hopes to set up a photonics park in the UAE, "It could change the future of this country, "he said. "This will make the production of photonic chips in the UAE a possibility and will move the country forward in innovation in a big way." He said the project could also inspire the younger generation. "Students could visit the park and understand how the latest technology works," he said. "This will inspire several youngsters to enter the industry and create a lasting impact."

 

Project of Passion

Coming from India and having numerous patented uses of holograms, Dr Ajith began working in the field in 1984. Governments and defense companies worldwide have bought some of his techniques for using holograms in weapons. He remains the only person ever to have been conferred two gold medals by American aeroscape company Lockheed Martin for his innovations. "When I first started in the field, I hooked on holography very quickly," he said. "If a picture equals a thousand words, a hologram equals a million. Everywhere I go, the response I get to the holograms I show is amazing. And each time I get a wow from someone, I enjoy my field a little more."

Currently, holograms are used in currencies. However, according to Dr Ajith, there are various other applications for which they can be used. Holograms can be used in passports for an additional layer of security," he said. We can also use them to safeguard important documents. A holographic document cannot be forged, photocopied, or tampered with. Holographic lasers can also improve the safety of an airplane's landing. The possibilities are endless."
