Optimization of the microstrip gas counter

Conference:

Abstract

A study has been made to optimize the characteristics of the micro-strip gas counter for use as a tracer at the LHC. In this framework the authors found that two of the most important design parameters of the detector are given by the choice of the counter gas and the width of the gas gap. In this report the authors deduce, using measurements done with a UV laser and a particle beam, two most suited mixtures which consist of xenon, di-methyl-ether and CO{sub 2}. Also the optimum width of the gas gap is derived. Here an efficient tagging will be possible at the LHC frequency. (author). 8 refs.; 6 figs.
