Descripción

First Edition. Frontispiece, xii, 124 pp, errata slip; 24 plates. Original cloth. Xlib: white ink number on spine, perforated stamp on title page, pouch glued to inside of rear cover. Else Very Good. "Powell began in the late 1930's to investigate the possible use of photographic emulsions to record the tracks of fast-moving electrically charged particles. After development of the emulsion, blackened grains of silver appear in the positions of atoms that have been ionized by the fast particles, so that the particle trajectories are visible when the process plate is examined under a suitable microscope. The power of the method was fully revealed when Powell exposed stacks of specially designed emulsion pellicles to cosmic radiation at mountain attitude. A new charged particle, the pi-meson or pion, of mass 273 times the mass of the electron, was discovered in 1947. The pion was the first of a large number of unstable elementary particles found since then, many by means of the photographic emulsion method. Powell's work marks the beginning of elementary particle physics as it is known today" (D. S. B. 11: 117). Cecil F. Powell: Nobel Prize, Physics, 1950. N° de ref. de la librería 05288
