Abstract

NUCLEAR disintegrations caused by cosmic rays can be observed only rarely in the Wilson cloud chamber. We have developed in recent years1 a more effective method of observing these nuclear disintegrations. In this method photographic plates coated with thick emulsions (thickness˜50 μ) are exposed to the action of cosmic rays and then developed.
