“Smart” holograms are novel sensor systems which utilise diffraction as the transduction method for the detection of physical or (bio)chemical stimuli. Interaction of these sensors with a specific analyte or stimulus changes the colour, image or brightness of the hologram and these changes can be visualised directly by the user or quantified. Sensor holograms are inexpensive, robust, label-free, format flexible systems which can be engineered to be sensitive to a wide range of analytes.
