In-line holograms of iron oxide chain aggregate particles (diameter: 0.08 to 0.1 μm and length: 4 to 6 μm) were obtained using a divergent pulsed YAG laser and then optically reconstructed with a He-Ne laser. Although unable to resolve the actual particle dimensions, the reconstructed images are adaptable to image processing techniques. The fiber orientation distribution can be determined from these techniques.
