not quite sure what you mean by drift chambers, keisiuho.
'drift tube accelerator' is another name for a linear accelerator, which is not at all similar to a spark chamber.
but cloud chambers and bubble chambers are very similar to spark chambers in that they are all used to detect beams of charged particles.
are filled with supersaturated alcohol vapour, which will condense on ionised atoms in preference to neutral atoms. the beam of charged particles ionises the atoms, so the path of the beam shows up as a series of drops of condensation.
work in a similar way. the chamber contains superheated liquid hydrogen (at a higher temp that it would normally be as a liquid) the ions produced by the passage of charged particles act as nucleating site on which the bubbles form. the path of a beam shows up at a trail of bubbles, which can be photographed.
consist of a wire mesh anode at a high potential in comparison to a nearby metal plate. when a charged particle passes between them, the air becomes conducting, and a spark jumps across the gap, which shows the presence of the particle. a beam of charged particles would show up as a trail of sparks.
well i hope this answers your questions!
writing these actually helps me loads with my revision, so if anyone has any more questions...
