English: Diagram of a continuous operation cloud chamber. Alcohol (typically isopropanol) is evaporated by a heater in a duct in the upper part of the chamber. Vapour descents to the black refrigerated plate and saturates. Due to the temperature gradient a thin layer of oversaturated vapour is formed above the bottom plate. In this region, radiation particles can induce condensation and create cloud tracks.
