Abstract

A method for obtaining high resolution photomicrographs of biological samples has been developed. This method consists of exposing the biological sample to a well collimated beam of high energy ions, filtering the ions transmitted through the sample with a crystal, and using the ions that pass through the filter to expose a photographic emulsion.
