In science:

Muons will be stopped in an active gas target consisting of a cryogenic ionization chamber operated as time pro jection chamber with ultra-pure deuterium.
Muon Capture on Deuteron and 3He: A Personal Review
Ackerbauer et al. used a gas ionization chamber, which allowed a better separation of muon and 3He signals.
Muon Capture on Deuteron and 3He: A Personal Review
They used a 3He ionization chamber to stop the incoming muons, re-polarize the (µ,3He) system and track the triton recoils.
Muon Capture on Deuteron and 3He: A Personal Review
In addition, α-particle spectra were recorded with an argon-filled ionization chamber. “The isotope Np231 has a half-life of 50±3 min. and emits alphaparticles of 6.28-Mev energy; the proportion of decay by electron-capture has not been determined.
Discovery of Isotopes of the Transuranium Elements with 93 <= Z <= 98
In another class of detectors like Time Pro jection Chamber or TPC detectors, the drifting of ionized charges, produced by recoil nucleon of the detector gas (generally Xenon or argon), produce the track from which the direction of recoil can also be measured.
