Tests of the performance of different gas mixtures in microstrip gas counters

Technical Report:

Abstract

This article describes measurements of the electron drift and diffusion parameters in gas mixtures, suited for application in a micro-strip gas counter. The aims were to optimize for position resolution, detection efficiency and response time. The measurements were done in mixtures of Ar, CF{sub 4}, C{sub 2}H{sub 6}, Xe, CO{sub 2} and DME using a pulsed UV laser beam. Results are reported from tests in a particle beam for efficiency and position resolution of the counter using the two gases found to be most promising in the laser tests. (author). 6 refs.; 15 figs.; 1 tab.
