June 14, 2010
The Gammasphere The Gammasphere, the worlds most powerful instrument for detecting gamma rays. Dedicated at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory on December 1, 1995, the purpose of the Gammasphere is to enable scientists to observe gamma radiation emitted by rapidly spinning atomic nuclei. Such observations yield information on nuclear structure that could not be obtained from conventional studies. (Date of Image: )
