This guide takes the reader on an illustrated journey into the sub-atomic world discovered by physicists over the past century. The authors describe the fundamental discoveries and the developments in equipment which have led to our current understanding of the nature of matter in the universe and the forces which govern its behaviour. Non-technical portraits of all major sub-atomic particles are given, from the electron, proton and neutron, through to quarks and muons. 
Reviews of Science for Science Librarians: Particle Detectors
ABSTRACT Particle detectors have played an important role in scientific observation since their creation over a hundred years ago, contributing to the discovery of elementary particles, advancing theExpand
The Search for QCD Exotics
For the past quarter-century, physicists have suspected that a subatomic particle unlike any other must exist?one made of the very glue that holds matter together at the most fundamental level. ThisExpand
Early developments: Particle physics aspects of cosmic rays
Abstract Cosmic rays is the birthplace of elementary particle physics. The 1936 Nobel prize was shared between Victor Hess and Carl Anderson. Anderson discovered the positron in a cloud chamber. TheExpand
Particles and Interactions: An Overview
In this introductory chapter, we shall get acquainted with the fundamental particles and their interactions, and have a first look at their characteristic properties which we shall study more fullyExpand
Physics of particle detection
In this review the basic interaction mechanisms of charged and neutral particles are presented. The ionization energy loss of charged particles is fundamental to most particle detectors and isExpand
Reminiscences on experimental work with various particle detectors
Abstract This paper contains some cloud chamber and discharge chamber photographs of phenomena in particle and cosmic ray physics. Among those reproduced are hitherto unpublished photographs ofExpand
The History of Cosmic Ray Studies after Hess
Abstract The discovery of cosmic rays by Victor Hess was confirmed with balloon flights at higher altitudes by Kolhorster. Soon the interest turned into questions about the nature of cosmic rays:Expand

The top quark
Abstract The top quark has probably been found at last, produced in very high energy proton-antiproton collisions. This article reviews the history of the discovery of the six quark types and theirExpand
Tracks from a Diffusion Cloud Chamber
  • 2000
A diffusion cloud chamber is constructed and data is recorded on a microcomputer using a CCD video camera. The cloud chamber shows the tracks of charged particles, and these tracks are later analyzedExpand
