Luis Alvarez and the Development of the Bubble Chamber
Many particles have been discovered and studied during the last half century. They are so minute that it is impossible to see them. They can only be identified by the tracks they leave behind them as they move. Luis Alvarez won a Nobel Prize in 1968 for his version of a powerful tracking tool called the bubble chamber. Equipped with this tool, scientists continue to come closer to revealing nature s innermost secrets. Luis bubble chamber contributed to the number of particles scientists now know about. His research played a part in the discovery of more than 70 elementary particles. This is the story of Luis Alvarez and his numerous contributions to physics.
