Methods of particle detection for high-energy physics experiments by Hugh Bradner( Book )

1 edition published in 1958 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Particle detection instruments may be divided into two classes; devices which see the actual path of the particle, and counting devices which indicate the passage of a particle. Examples of each class are given, the characteristics of each example are tabulated, and the uses for each device are discussed. (D.E.B.)

What can we see, how do we see it, and why do we see things that aren't there? by D. A Glaser( Visual )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Prof. Donald Glaser talks about the human visual system which contains 10 ̂11 neurons, of which one third are devoted to vision alone. We know the wiring diagram and the psychophysics of the system quite well, but we don't understand the meaning of the inter-neuronal signals. Since each neuron receives trains of random voltage spikes from about 10 ̂4 other neurons, the traffic is noisy and intense and yet we see the world as stable, clear, and gapless. He summarizes the wiring diagram (anatomy), the conventional bag of tricks theory of how the system works (which he things is wrong), and outlines the alternative model, the Excitable Nueronal Array, which is a simple neural network characterized by a small number of parameters. The dynamic properties of the ENA can account for perception of motion, depth, and perhaps other visual abilities. Finally, he shows some static pictures in which illusory motion is seen. The model accounts for these illusions as a consequence of statistical voltage fluctuations, analogous to stochastic resonance in a noisy brain, in which noise is otherwise nearly always suppressed

The momentum distribution of charged cosmic ray particles near sea level by D. A Glaser( )

NOTE: Text or symbols not renderable in plain ASCII are indicated by [...]. Abstract is included in .pdf document. A new measurement of the momentum distribution of high energy charged cosmic ray particles at sea level has been made by means of a technique involving the use of two cloud chambers and a large electromagnet. With about twice the precision of previous determinations, the spectrum is extended to a momentum of pe = 80 Bev. For the 1547 measureable sets of tracks recorded, the positive-negative ratio is 1.26 [plus or minus] 0.06, Up to the highest momenta measured the differential spectrum falls off as 1/p[superscript s] with s = 2 very nearly. The positive excess and positive-negative ratio appear to be functions of momentum with the positives predominating at about 1.3 Bev. In other respects the positive and negative spectra are very similar. Although the effect is barely outside statistical uncertainty, there seems to be an anomolous dip in the momentum distribution at about 3 Bev. In addition to this there seems to have been a small diurnal variation in the spectrum during the time the experiments were performed, 1 Bev and 4 Bev particles being slightly favored during the day and 3 Bev and 7 Bev particles being favored at night. These effects are discussed and the present results are compared with data of other experimenters
