Konstantinov, D., W. Homsi, J. Luzuriaga, C. - K. Su, M. A. Weilert, and H. J. Maris. "How Does a Bubble Chamber Work?" Journal of Low Temperature Physics 113, no. 3-4 (1998): 485–490.
Abstract: A charged particle passing through a bubble chamber produces a track of bubbles. The way in which these bubbles are produced has been a matter of some controversy. We consider the possibility that in helium and hydrogen bubble chambers the production of bubbles is primarily a mechanical process, rather than a thermal process as has often been assumed. The model we propose gives results which are in excellent agreement with experiment.
