"Infrared Emission: a New Possible Approach to Particle Detectors"


[ Full Article | Comments, Questions & Answers | Help | IIB Home Page ]


A brief review on the infrared concepts and photodetectors will be summarized. Emission of infrared photons has been observed in an ionization chamber filled with standard gases and some results are reported. Light produced by the electron drifting in the gaseous media has also been observed. Results are presented as a function of the electric drift field.
