Description

This bubble chamber, built for Imperial College in London, was used to study atomic particles. It contained liquid hydrogen at low temperature and high presure. The presure was released as particles pased through the chamber. The chamber's liquid hydrogen would then boil on trails of charged atoms left by the particles, which could then be photographed and analysed.
