The discovery of anti-matter : the autobiography of Carl David Anderson, the youngest man to win the Nobel prize by Carl D Anderson( Book )

5 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1936, at age 31, Carl David Anderson became the second youngest Nobel laureate for his discovery of antimatter when he observed positrons in a cloud chamber. He is responsible for developing rocket power weapons that were used in World War II. He was born in New York City in 1905 and was educated in Los Angeles. He served for many years as a physics professor at California Institute of Technology. Prior to Oppenheimer, Anderson was offered the job of heading the Los Alamos atomic bomb program but could not assume the role because of family obligations. He was a pioneer in studying cosmic rays

The positive electron by Carl D Anderson( Book )

1 edition published in 1933 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By 1933 Anderson had looked at 1300 photographs of cosmic ray tracks of which 15 were of positive tracks that could not have a mass as great as that of a proton. He found that they occur in groups of other tracks so were secondary particles and appeared to have the same charge as a proton and a mass less than 20 times the mass of an electron. Dirac's theory of the electron played little part in the initial interpretation of the discovery of what Anderson called positrons. This was a serendipitous discovery not led by theory

The relation of the positron energy spectrum to the decay constant and to the energy of the bombarding protons by Carl D Anderson( )

1 edition published in 1934 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

We have reported(1) approximate energy distributions of the positrons emitted by various substances activated by proton or deuton bombardment. A typical photograph is reproduced in Fig. 1. To find whether a relation exists between the maximum energy of the bombarding particles and the energies of the disintegration positrons we have studied numerous samples of carbon bombarded by protons at peak voltages of 900,000 and 700,000, supplied us by Dr. Lauritsen and Mr. Crane
Cloud chamber observations of cosmic rays at 4300 meters elevation and near sea-level by Carl D Anderson( )

1 edition published in 1936 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Cloud chamber photographs at 4300 meters elevation show positive and negative electron tracks similar to those observed at sea-level, but positive-negative electron showers occur more frequently and, in general, consist of more numerous tracks. Showers of 2-4 tracks, 5-10 tracks, and 11-100 tracks occur respectively, 8.6, 21 and 29 times as frequently per unit time at 4300 meters as they do near sea-level. Further measurements on the energy loss in lead of electrons up to 400 MEV, are given. They show that in this range of energies the energy loss in lead is roughly proportional to the incident energy. About one percent of the exposures on Pike's Peak reveal the presence of strongly ionizing particles which in most cases seem to be protons. The proportion of such tracks is considerably greater than at Pasadena. These heavy tracks in general bear only little relation in direction to that of the incoming beam, and usually arise from a type of nuclear disintegration not heretofore observed. The energies of these heavily ionizing particles may rise to values so high as 150 MEV, thus indicating that the source of the particle energies is in the cosmic rays

Space-distribution of x-ray photoelectrons ejected from the K and L atomic energy-levels by Carl D Anderson( )

1 edition published in 1930 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A C.T.R. Wilson expansion-chamber was used to study the space-distribution of photoelectrons ejected from a gas by monochromatic x-rays. In agreement with Auger, and Watson and Van den Akker a more isotropic space-distribution was found for electrons ejected from the L energy-levels than for those ejected from the K energy-level. The distribution of the electrons from the L energy-levels became less isotropic with an increase in frequency of the incident radiation. For a given radiation, the average forward momentum of the electrons from the K energy-level was found to decrease with an increase in the binding energy of the parent atom. Within experimental error, however, for electrons from the K energy level, even for different binding energies, the average forward momentum remained the same for a given velocity of ejection of the electron. The average forward momentum of electrons from the L energy-level was greater than that for electrons from the K energy-level for a given velocity of ejection. The space-distribution of electrons from the K energy-level was in fair accord with the recent results of quantum mechanics
The mean lifetime of v-particles by William Lumpkin Alford( Book )

1 edition published in 1953 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

(NO TITLE)( Book )

1 edition published in 1964 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Research was concerned with: (1) A continuation of the study of high energy cosmic-ray reactions by means of cloud chambers. The purpose of this project is to work in the high energy range not yet possible with machines. (2) A study of the behavior of cosmic rays as a function of solar activity. This is a continuation of the balloon program started in 1951. (3) In 1957 activities under this contract were expanded to include work of Professor R.B. Leighton on the properties of the photosphere of the sun. (Author)

Space-distribution of X-ray photoelectrons ejected from the K and L atomic energy-levels by Carl D Anderson( )

1 edition published in 1930 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A C.F.R. Wilson expansion-chamber was used to study the space-distribution of photoelectrons ejected from a gas by monochromatic x-rays. Distribution curves were obtained for electrons ejected from both the K and the L atomic energy-levels. A more isotropic space-distribution was found for electrons ejected from the L energy-levels than for those from the K energy-level. The distribution of the electrons from the L energy-levels became less isotropic with an increase in the frequency of the incident radiation. For a given radiation, the average forward momentum of the electrons from the K energy-level was found to decrease with an increase in the binding energy of the parent atom. Within experimental error, however, for electrons from the K energy-level, even for different binding energies, the average forward momentum remained the same for a given velocity of ejection of the electron. The average forward momentum of electrons ejected from the L energy-levels level was greater than that for electrons from the K energy-level for a given velocity of ejection. The average forward momentum of the electrons ejected from the K shell was in fair accord with recent results of quantum mechanics. The observed values of the average forward momentum of the electrons ejected from the L energy-levels were slightly greater than those given by the theory
