Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Gargamelle was a giant bubble chamber detector at CERN, designed mostly for the detection of neutrinos. Built in France, with a diameter of nearly 2 meters and 4.8 meters in length, Gargamelle held nearly 12 cubic meters of freon. It operated from 1970 to 1978 with a neutrino beam from the CERN Proton Synchrotron. It was used to make one of the most important discoveries ever made at CERN: the experimental observation of the weak neutral currents in 1973, shortly after their theoretical prediction.show more
