Uncertainty due to this drift component is approximately equal to the sum of all other non-gain components at visible wavelengths.
The visible and IR transmissions and reflections can be tuned over particular wavelengths to give the hologram unique features such as selective see-through effect, selective reflectance in the visible wavelength and selective IR rejection rate at long wavelengths.
The near-infrared photoactive polymer absorbs more near-infrared light but is less sensitive to visible light, balancing solar cell performance and transparency in the visible wavelength region.
"Their meeting causes an excited state in the chain, which emits a photon in the visible wavelength," Holmes explains.
