Caption: Spark chamber forming part of a particle detector at the AGS (Alternating Gradient Synchrotron) accelerator at the Brookhaven National Laboratory, Long Island, New York. This is an early type of spark chamber (photographed in 1965) consisting of vertically stacked aluminium plates. The space between the plates in the chamber is filled with a mixture of helium & neon gas, & when charged particles pass through, they ionise the gas & cause sparks to jump between the plates where they have passed. These spark trails are photographed for subsequent analysis. The detector shown was used to study neutrino interactions.
