Abstract
Examines an extension of the bubble detector's capabilities to measure the Linear Energy Transfer (LET) of heavy ions, with the goal of eventually measuring the space cosmic-ray LET environment and thus predicting Single Event Upsets in semic-conductor memories. The report examines a number of microencapulation methods for the detectors before finally arriving at a production method technique giving detectors which are experimentally shown to respond to heavy ions.
