Abstract

Bubble detectors were irradiated with protons and demonstrated that a special type of bubble detector could directly record proton tracks. The track of a proton is composed of one or more bubbles at the Bragg peak in the end of the proton range. A proton can produce at least one bubble as its track. Successful recording of proton tracks shows that bubble detectors can be used as a new type of heavy ion track detector to register all nuclei with atomic numbers in the entire Periodic Table of Elements. The applications of bubble detectors based on proton registration have been desired in the study of nuclear interactions, space research and cancer therapy.
