Automatic Fission Track Counting - References

Here is a list of publications describing the new technique of counting fission tracks automatically, which was developed jointly by Autoscan Systems Pty. Ltd. and the University of Melbourne under a 3-year cooperative research project with the assistance of an ARC (Australian Research Council) grant.
