My research project for this year is to study nuclear emulsion plates sent to the physics department by Dr. Davi.d Young of Mississippi State University and to learn as much as possible about the fields related to the project. These plates are exposed to cosmic rays at altitudes, for all practical purposes, above the earth's atmosphere. They are then collected and processed. They will be sent to us so that we can scan them next semester.

The first semester's part of the project was to scan a sample plate and to do· a literature research of related fields. Therefore, this paper is not a formal research paper on one topic, but instead a sample of scanning and outlines of the books I have read.
