Paper Abstract

The SL-3 flight on the NASA Space Shuttle will carry a 25 mW He-Ne laser holographic recorder for recording the solution growth of Triglycine Sulfate (TGS) crystals under low-zero gravity conditions. Three hundred holograms (two orthogonal views) will be taken (on SO-253 film) of each (rb3) growth experiment. Processing and analysis (i.e., reconstructed imagery, holographic schlieren, reverse reference beam microscopy, and stored beam interferometry) of the holographic records will be done at NASA/MSFC. Other uses of the recorder on the Shuttle have been proposed.
