The 2D-MicroHole and Strip Plate (MHSP) is a simple single photon counting detector for X-ray imaging. It is a micropattern gaseous detector having two orthogonal resistive lines crossing the amplification and readout electrodes on both sides of the MHSP for position detection. In this detector, not only the interaction position can be determined, but also(More)
A new X-ray imaging detector based on a 2D-THCOBRA micropatterned structure using a simple position readout is proposed. It consists of a hybrid device that combines the properties of a THGEM and a 2D-MHSP in a single structure, having two charge multiplication stages reaching the demanded gains for the use of charge division readout methods. For position(More)
Micropatterned Gaseous Detectors (MPGDs) have been used for several years in single photon counting and energy resolved imaging systems. This kind of detectors presents suitable characteristics for such purposes as: elimination of the electronic noise, good energy resolution and high counting rate capability, absence of dead areas and 2D intrinsic position(More)
