Sample text

Electrons in a crystal exist in distinct energy levels called bands, just as electrons in an atom exist in distinct energy levels called shells. In a crystal the electrons, especially the outer most or valence electrons oscillate between nearest neighbor atoms in the structure, giving some of these substances unique properties. The first excited energy state or “band” above the valence band is called the conduction band. In those materials, known as metals, electrons exist naturally in the conduction band, but in insulators this is not true.

There are important exceptions to this rule; in certain cases alpha particles are produced by thermal neutrons. 7) The boron interaction above, with the subsequent detection of the produced alpha particle, is a favored method for identifying thermal neutrons. In addition, because of the production of an alpha particle, boron is used in neutron therapy for certain types of brain tumors. This type of therapy has had mixed success and is also hampered by the need to have a source of thermal neutrons present.

To accomplish this goal, a known fraction of the charge produced within the chamber must be collected and no other ionization can take place. Therefore, it is necessary to understand how the electron and residual positive ions, once formed, behave. When an outer-shell or valence electron is released from an atom, the immediate inclination of electron and positive ion is to reunite. To avoid this “recombination” a certain minimum level of voltage must exert enough force on the electron to separate it from the positive ion and to send both of them on their respective ways.
