TEL-400LHCC

The chamber creates a volume of supersaturated alcohol vapor that condenses on ions left in the wake of charged particles. This is accomplished by establishing a steep vertical temperature gradient with dry ice. Alcohol evaporates from the warm topside and diffuses toward the cold bottom. The gravitationally stable temperature distribution permits a layer of supersaturation near the chamber bottom. Tracks of alcohol droplets indicate trajectories of charged particles, since each ion becomes a nucleation site for droplet condensation. 

This cloud chamber is more suitable for lecture hall demonstrations. It has a viewing area measuring 51 x 51 cm. Fourteen kg of dry ice and 500 ml of ethanol will operate this chamber for 8 hours.
