Abstract

A Geiger-counter placed inside a cloud chamber and coupled by means of a coincidence circuit to a second counter placed above the chamber has been employed to increase the probability of observing cosmic-ray particles near the ends of their ranges, and thus to provide information concerning the mass and stability properties of the particles of intermediate mass.
