Abstract

Flying spot measuring machines for use on bubble chamber film were first proposed by Hough and Powell in 1960. A new machine nearing completion at Brookhaven National Laboratory employs a fixed and moving fiber to generate a 15-μ spot that will scan over an area 53 × 160 mm in 10 sec. Centers of marks on the film will be digitized to an accuracy of ±5μ and the coordinates fed on line into a computer for analysis.
