Neon-Hydrogen Bubble Chambers
Some of the recent significant advances in high-energy physics have been made using bubble chambers in conjunction with high-energy accelerators. Two basically different types of bubble chambers are presently used. There are the light liquid chambers which operate cryogenically with liquid hydrogen and deuterium as the detecting medium for charged particles. There are also heavy liquid chambers which are usually filled with propane, Freon, or liquid mixtures and operate near room temperature, Heavy liquid chambers are more efficient than hydrogen chambers for observing gamma-ray conversions and neutrino interactions which would normally go undetected in liquid hydrogen because of its long radiation length (approximately 990 cm) and low density.
