    How to build a Cloud Chamber

    Hello David,I'm currently using a 240P water cooling system made by cooler master with a tec12715 and a tec12710 on top. Temperatures average at -15 degrees celsius, which is obviously insufficient for the diffusion effect to occur. However, after some considerations I discovered that in a normal dry ice cooler, a hot substance was put on top of the chamber to create the temperature gradient. Using the same theory, if I sacrifice my "ion scrubber" on top and put a hot object, wouldn't this create the diffusion effect which can visualise particles? Even though I have -15 at the bottom? How can I achieve lower temperatures otherwise with what I already have?

  • Make a Cloud Chamber using Peltier Coolers

    Thanks for your advice Rich!Could clear acrylic boxes do the job too? Such as those clear display cases you find in common home stores.

    Can the 12709 peltier cooler be used on 12V as well?

  • Make a Cloud Chamber using Peltier Coolers

    For this peltier cooler cloud chamber, I noticed that you have used a plastic container. Would a glass container suffice as well? Which one would you recommend? Furthermore, would it be ok if my design simply consisted of a container top over an aluminium plate which is thermally pasted on peltier coolers?Sorry for the bunch of questions but I would like to clarify whether this is a good method in achieving a cool base and in general, make my cloud chamber work. Because in the end, I plan on attaching high voltage to a pin at the top of the chamber as well as the aluminium plate.Thx!

  • Make a Cloud Chamber using Peltier Coolers

    Hello, may I ask how large the surface area of cooling will be if I use the peltier coolers as you have shown above? Is there any way of increasing this surface area, such as putting a larger aluminium plate above? Furthermore, what is the effect of having a single peltier at the bottom while above it having two peltiers? Would this cool a larger surface area?Thank you!
