This large cloud chamber allows the visualization of atomic particles as they pass through a super saturated Isopropanol vapour, cooled by dry ice. Energetic charged particles collide with the gas molecules causing a trail of ionized particles. These ionized gas particles act as nucleation sites on which the super saturated alcohol vapour condenses, leaving a cloud like trail that lasts for a few seconds. The built in LED lighting is collimated to produce less glare, making the traces highly visible. The foam inserts housed in a Gratnells tray, provide excellent insulation giving run times of over one hour, as well as convenient storage. The large tank size means the cloud chamber is even capable of detecting background radiation.

  • Supplied with a thoriated welding rod to use as a source and full instructions.

Additional products required to operate (not included):

  • Isopropanol (Propan-2-ol) - B8F78836
  • 12V d.c. Power Supply - B8G85458 (or similar)
  • 4mm Connecting Lead - B8R05705 (2 required)
  • Dry Ice - B8R05358 (10kg of 9mm pellets)
  • Atomic Physics & Radiation
  • An excellent demonstration to use during Open Evenings
  • It is worth trying to arrange multiple demonstrations of the Cloud Chamber on the same day, in order to make full use of the Dry Ice.
