Abstract

As a result of the successful operation of the smaller bubble chambers previously described,1 the University of California Radiation Laboratory is planning a large liquid hydrogen bubble chamber. The National Bureau of Standards is assisting the Radiation Laboratory in the design and development of a 500 liter liquid hydrogen bubble chamber. The chamber has an observation window of Z0 x 72 inches. The design pressures for the chamber are such that it is capable of being used with both hydrogen and deuterium. The design conditions are 27°K and 6 atmospheres for hydrogen and 34°K and 9 atmospheres for deuterium.
