Abstract : Tracks of energetic charged particles, such as heavy primary cosmic rays and the products of nuclear collisions, were made visible within the interior of large, transparent crystals of silver chloride. The tracks are delineated by photoelectric formation of metallic silver along them. This technique may be useful as a convenient and distortion-free method for the study of heavy primaries and fission fragments. (Author)
