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.

An ionization chamber is visible as large aluminum square with a round hole on the left hand side.
Proton and Neutron Irradiation Tests of Readout Electronics of the ATLAS Hadronic Endcap Calorimeter
The total beam flux was measured and calibrated by the PIF group with ionization chambers.
Proton and Neutron Irradiation Tests of Readout Electronics of the ATLAS Hadronic Endcap Calorimeter
The concern is that incident and scattered protons activate various parts of the scattering chamber, and in the process may transfer some of their polarization to the resulting beta emitters, which in turn contribute to the currents in the ionization chamber and the Faraday cup.
Parity Violation and the Nucleon-Nucleon System
The transmission experiment is to use a 40 cm long liquid hydrogen target, with incident and transmitted protons detected by ionization chambers similar to the 800 MeV experiment mentioned above.
Parity Violation and the Nucleon-Nucleon System
Using a maximum-likelihood technique we determine whether the signals induced on the TRD chamber cathodes indicate the presence of TR, or are consistent with ionization energy loss alone.
Measurements of the Cosmic-Ray Positron Fraction From 1 to 50 GeV
In addition, the anode wires of each TRD chamber are read out in 25 ns time slices, in order to detect ionization clusters typical for x-ray signals.
Measurements of the Cosmic-Ray Positron Fraction From 1 to 50 GeV
Fig.8 shows the distribution of the selected events over the parameter DP E = p − Eloss − EC sI , where p is the particle momentum measured in drift chamber, EC sI is the energy deposition in CsI calorimeter and Eloss is the an ionization energy loss in the material in front of CsI calorimeter.

Stable charged heavy leptons are also expected to be highly ionizing in the tracking chamber.
Search for Heavy Neutral and Charged Leptons in e+ e- Annihilation at LEP
Charge-integrating detectors like solid state detectors or ionization chambers will measure a combination of muon signal and δ ray background.
