Paper Abstract

The technique of holography used in a neutrino experiment during 1985 in the 15-foot cryogenic bubble chamber at Fermilab is presented. In this technique, a modified in-line recording method is used to produce holograms of neutrino interactions. In these high energy interactions short-lived particles are produced which decay in times of order of 10-13 seconds. Holography gives a high resolution over a long depth of field compared to the conventional photographic recording technique. A pulsed ruby laser with an opto-electronic feedback circuit allows the generation of long pulses (a few tens of microseconds). One hundred thousand holograms were recorded during the experiment. An evaluation of the recorded holograms is presented.
