Summary

The ionizatiou produced by relativistic electrons with energies between 150 MeV and 550 MeV has been measured in hydrogen, helium, xenon, and xenon-helium mixtures, using an ionization chamber in the beam of the Stanford linear electron accelerator. The experimental results are in good agreement with theoretical predictions.

Riassunto

Per mezzo di una camera a ionizzazione posta nel fascio dell’acceleratore lineare di eiettroni di Stanford, si è misurata la ionizzazione prodotta nell’idrogeno, nell’elio, nello xenon e nelle miscele xenon-elio da eiettroni relativistici aventi energie comprese fra 150 e 550 MeV. I risultati sperimentali sono in buon accordo con le predizioni teoriche.
