dc.description.abstract <p>The purpose of this investigation was to study the total ionization yield of charged atomic particles in gases for energies in the range of a few to 250 kev. A large cylindrical ionization chamber was used for this study. The charged particles were selected from the kevatron beam by a magnetic and an electrostatic analyzer and entered the chamber by means of a 0.004 inch diameter open window. A differential pumping system permitted pressures up to 10 mm Hg to be maintained in the chamber. The chamber was alternately operated as a proportional counter and an ionization chamber to measure the rate with which the primary items entered the chamber and the ionization produced by them, respectively. A detailed description of the apparatus and measuring technique are given.</p>
