Abstract

This article is about detecting high energy particle events using spark chamber.

 

A method of detecting high-energy particle events is to use the spark chamber developed by Fukui and Miyamoto. It is based on the simple fact that if the voltage across two metal plates few cm apart is increased beyond a certain limit a breakdown in the form of sparkling occurs. Spark chamber combines some of the advantages of the trigger track detectors and counters example, high resolution in space and also in time. Its operation depends on the stability of an ionized gas against spark breakdown.
