Cloud chambers the authoritative guide

Cloud Chambersthe authoritative guide

by: Waylon Flinn, Matthew “Sezbo”,

and Daniel Brue

the (not-so)obvious authorities on everything


Wilson cloud chamber a poisson counter

Wilson Cloud Chamber: A Poisson Counter

  • Run the experiment repeatedly; count the number of trails for each trial.

  • The data should match a Poisson distribution


Wilson cloud chamber its life in pictures

Wilson Cloud Chamber: Its Life in Pictures

  • Radioactive particle source emitting two alpha particles

  • Picture shown with colors inverted


Wilson cloud chamber measuring the magnetic field

Wilson Cloud Chamber: Measuring the Magnetic Field

  • Two alpha particle trails over a magnetic field.

  • Field pointing out of page.

  • Little or no noticeable effect on particle trajectories


Diffusion chamber a picture is worth a thousands words but a movie will make you money

Diffusion Chamber: A Picture is Worth a Thousands Words, but a Movie will Make you Money


Diffusion chamber measuring the magnetic field revisited

Diffusion Chamber: Measuring the Magnetic Field Revisited

  • Thorium source emitting alpha particles over a magnet.

  • Slight change in particle trajectory.


Conclusion

Conclusion

  • cloud chambers count particles

  • cloud chambers show field interaction effects

  • cloud chambers are cool!?!
