Abstract

It is possible to design a cylindrical condensing system whose geometry allows light to be collected along the length of narrow tubular sources and to pass through a restricted port area. The quantity of light collected is many times that possible to obtain with axially symmetric lenses. This system has been applied to the illumination of the Brookhaven 80-in. bubble chamber. The optical arrangement is described. Other unique features include the use of plano reflectors to extend optically the flashtube and condenser lengths and the provision of a spot plate to eliminate surface reflections from the chamber window
