Holography, with submi crosecond pulsed lasers used for illumi nation, enables one to record an instant of time of a transient, dynamic event throughout a significant volume for later study and analysis with conven tional microscopic equipment. Living marine plankton organisms are used to demonstrate one practical application of this technique.
