Abstract:

Instrumentation was developed for the study of microcirculation hemodynamics and related physiological studies of man and animal. Developed was a complete cineholomicrographic recording and playback system capable of producing holomicrographs of biological specimens at rates up to 50 frames per second on 35mm film. Key system features include a 1.2 micron resolution over the full 3mm by 3mm by 10mm field, use of a high power pulsed argon laser for high speed or time differential holography, high accuracy 35mm film transport for continuous ultra-low jitter recording and playback, delay line assembly for reduction of the laser speckle coherence problem, a fully articulated thre-axis microscope system for viewing the reconstructed image, and provision for mounting a 16mm movie camera on the microscope for recording the reconstructed image.
