View Resource Single Electron Detection in Quadruple-GEM Detector with Pad Readout

This pre-print from the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC) demonstrates the detection of single electrons in ethane at 1 bar through the use of four GEMs operating in tandem and coupled to pad readout. The paper, available for download in .pdf or .ps format, presents "measurements of single electron pulse height distributions, total gas gain measurement and calculation, pad-to-pad...

View Resource Atomic Orbitals

The Atomic Orbitals Web site "was established as part of an (ongoing) project at Purdue University to develop 'visualization modules' for general chemistry students." Using the Chime plug-in, which allows unique and stunning visualizations, visitors can learn what an atomic orbital is; what the 1s, 2s, 3s, 2p, 3p, and 3d orbitals are; what hybrid orbitals are; and more. The combination of...
