Tracks in a hydrogen bubble chamber Feature Summary

Type:
From Physics Research
Title:
Tracks in a hydrogen bubble chamber
Description:
These tracks (high-res version) were made by charged particles in a bubble chamber (a technology used in the 1970s).  A magnetic field perpendicular to the image produces a force that curves the orbits of charged particles. See Tracks in a hydrogen bubble chamber for information about this image, and to find out more, visit CERN's Introduction to the BC Site.
