Summary

An account is given of measurements of ionization in bubble chamber by bubble counting, gap-counting and gap-length techniques. The relative advantages of these techniques and their validity in given experimental conditions are discussed. The variation of mean gap-length as a function of velocity of the particle is determined and compared with previous investigations.

Riassunto

Conteggio di bolle, di gap e misure di lunghezza di gap sono stati impiegati per misure di ionizzazione in camere a bolle. Sono discusse le tecniche ed i vantaggi relativi a questi metodi in diverse condizioni sperimentali. È stata determinata la lunghezza media di gap come funzione della velocità della particella e i risultati vengono confrontati con precedenti misure.
