A New Type of Particle Detector: the "Discharge Chamber''
Nuovo Cim. 11 (1959) 113;

Recently, the devices based on gaseous discharges which can determine the trajectory of ionizing particles, such as the hodoscope chamber or the triggered spark counter have been reported. However, these have some inherent imperfections, in spite of their wide usefulness as detectors. Regarding the former, even taking into account the considerations of F. Ashton et al., one cannot expect a very precise determination of the trajectory of the particle, owing to the finite dimensions of the glass tubes and their dead spaces, and in the latter it is difficult to determine all trajectories when more than two particles pass through simultaneously because the discharge, which grows in advance of others, decreases the intensity of the electric field very rapidly. We describe here the possibility of constructing a new type of detector also based on the gaseous discharge. This detector secures the precision of the trajectory of the particle and works for a group of particles.
