Abstract : After reviewing the difficulties involved in determining the energy of high-energy particles from track curvatures with ionization chambers, movable films, and other methods, the author proposes a spectrometer design consisting of several spark chambers, Fe absorbers, and scintillators. The use and operation of the spectrometer are discussed in extensive detail. Also, variations in configuration are proposed: e.g., one in which spark chambers, scintillators, and Fe absorbers are alternated in a stack. In this design the plastic scintillators or the vessels containing the scintillation liquid have a special shape to compensate for the emitted light with respect to the photomultipliers. (Author)
