Microinterferometric Examination of Nuclear Emulsion Plates
Australian Journal of Physics
7(4) 652 - 654
The photographic emulsion is one of several means of detecting charged particles emitted in nuclear reactions or from radioactive materials, and emulsion technique has developed enormously over the past few years; it is now an invaluable laboratory tool. Whilst the principles of nuclear emulsion microscopy are well established, the application of interference microscopy to the study of nuclear emulsions is new. Although it seems that the interferometric technique would have no real advantage at the present time over the conventional microscopic methods of track examination, it is felt desirable to report some observations on the examination of tracks by interferometry and to suggest some lines of possible investigation.
