A study has been made of the ionization within a fiat cavity chamber under irradiation by X -and gamma rays in the energy region 38 to 1,250 kilovolts effectiv e (kev). Chamber walls were mad e of carbon, aluminum, copper, tin, and lead, and the wall separation was varied from 0.5 to 10 millimeters. Results are compared with cavity theory.
