Main Question or Discussion Point
I was in my AP Physics class discussing wavelengths of the electromagnetic spectrum and I came up with the idea to attempt a gamma ray microscope. Of course this is extremely dangerous, so I will have to be cautious (and use a lot of lead). Is there a way to produce gamma rays? I know they cannot be manipulated with electromagnetic fields, so that would be a problem. Would it be possible to direct them and focus them, then have them go into a sort of detector? Or will the lack of charge make that impossible?
