    On the topic of translations, I found this paper by Cajal, a Spanish researcher in the field of Lippmann's. The cool thing is that this text is copy & paste-able, so it could be quite easily translated automatically, and it's in Spanish which would probably be one of the easier languages to translate(?).

    Thanks to Ray and Lionel for their translation. We're boldly going where no other man has gone before, at least, if you only speak English!

    Also, does anyone edit wikipedia? I think that we could probably do a lot to the current page on Lippmann Plates, adding links that we've found and just generally making it a more comprehensive paper. Just a thought. My brother does a lot of wikipedia stuff, so I might have him show me the ropes, I believe it's pretty easy.

    Now if only some more of us could follow R Shaffer's example and actually put rubber to the road!

    I recognize his name.
    I wonder if that paper has already been translated?
    I think we do have a 9 page abstract of this in English in the group of papers compiled by HOLOGRAM, if I recall correctly... plus a German translation of the full artcle as well!

    BUT in any case, NICE FIND!

    Maybe it was already referenced, but I found this PDF with summaries of the historic British Journal of Photography:

    http://www.arp-geh.org/FileUpload_demo/BJPAsummary1.pdf

    It mentiones Lippmann plates and photography several times too. Please note that these are just summaries, you will have to look up the actual journals to see the full articles. But maybe useful as a reference...

    I don't think Rachel will be willing to waste another whole summer on that exercise

    What I don't understand is that, if scanning or photocopying is an issue, they don't simply photograph the stuff (well, might be an idea for someone visiting the library and wanting to share some article).

    Well, In some cases that might be a possible option.

    The main problem of doing any major work like Rachel did is funding/support.
    At 80-110 dollars per day just to sleep indoors in safety one needs lots of money....

    I don't know how much a "summer" is (1 month or 2) but...

    166 pages...
    1 month...166 pages / 31 days... = 5.4 pgs per day

    A Hotel (w/no food!) $100 / day for 5.4 pages....

    So for someone not living in the area, more than $3000 for this pdf....
    (not including the lost summer!)

    This article is completely unrelated to Lippmann photography, but it's about anamorphic lenses, and he talks about prisms and where to get cheap ones. Scroll down a ways to find it.

    http://www.zuggsoft.com/theater/prism.htm

    But it's pretty brilliant... TROPHY SHOPS. There are all sorts of lame prism/wedge awards and you can just easily buy a blank one. These should/could work great for Lippmann viewing.
