Neutrino Invitation Suite
The beautiful designs in this suite were reproduced from bubble chamber photographs. Charged particles moving through the chamber leave tiny trails of bubbles that can be photographed. The chamber is subject to a magnetic field, which causes charged particles to travel in curved paths. The track of a charged particle can be used to identify it and any collision or decay events it participates in. Spiral tracks are created by electrons or positrons (antielectrons). Straight or slightly curved paths are created by other charged particles such as protons, muons, charged pions, or charged kaons. Photons, neutrons, neutrinos, and other neutral particles create no tracks, but their presence can be detected via collisions or decays.
