Nuclear emulsion is so far the best detector to investigate double-strangeness nucleus including double Lambda hypernucleus, which is a nucleus made up of two lambda hyperons in addition to nucleons. Two types of scanning system are being developed to search for more events of double Lambda hypernucleus rapidly. One is a system for automated Xi- hyperon tracking. The other is "Overall scanning", high-speed scanning and image recognition for vertex-like-shapes from microscopic images of the tracks in nuclear emulsion plates.
