Abstract:

In order to determine the shape of the ionization curve in nuclear emulsions at values of gamma 100, the blob density of relativistic electron tracks was measured. The pv of the pair produced electrons used was determined by multiple scattering. A total of 84.45 centimeters of electron track was blob counted and scattered. From gamma 100 to gamma 5400 the data were combined into 14 points each with a statistical uncertainty on blob density of less than than 1. These points indicate a level plateau and show no deviation from this plateau within our statistical accuracy. Pions were used to estimate the minimum of the ionization curve, and ratio of blob density plateau to blob density minimum is estimated to be 1.140 or - .020. Author
