Which Joe gave his name to ‘sloppy joes’? We look at five interesting sandwiches and their lexical origins.
An instrument for detecting ionizing radiation.
- ‘The novel positron camera is based on a gas filled ionisation chamber as developed for particle physics by Nobel prize winner, George Charpak.’
- ‘For data analysis the diffraction patterns were corrected for uneven detector response and normalized to the ionization chamber, i.e., to the intensity of the incoming beam.’
- ‘To determine the beam size at the sample position, a knife-edge scan was performed and the beam intensity was measured with an ionization chamber placed downstream of the sample stage.’
- ‘There are five major parts to a mass spectrometer: the inlet, the ionization chamber, the mass analyzer, the detector, and the electronic readout device.’
- ‘This was used on his electroscopes and on his ionisation chambers for the work that he did with alpha particles.’
- ‘Ionization smoke detectors detect the presence of smoke using an ionization chamber and a source of ionizing radiation.’
- ‘The beam intensity and sample absorption was monitored by two ionization chambers, placed before and after the sample, and by a PIN diode at the beamstop.’
- ‘A conventional dosimetry system consisting of three parallel plate ionization chambers upstream of the sample holder was used.’
