Virtual Cloud Chamber revisited

August 7th, 2017
by Joseph Magill

The Virtual Cloud Chamber has been updated. The previously used Cortona VRML plugin viewer used to view the GEANT4 3D simulations is no longer supported by modern browsers and has been discarded. In its place, the VMRL WRL files are now converted from WRL to X3D HTML format using a tool from InstantReality. A major advantage is that the converted files can now be shown directly in the browser – without the use of a plugin.

Animations can also be generated by the Virtual Cloud Chamber but these cannot currently be shown directly in the browser. To view the 3d animations, the user should download the Instant Reality player (instantplayer) for this purpose.
