We have developed MICROMEGAS (MICRO MEsh GASeous) detectors for detecting a particles emitted from an 241Am standard source. The voltage applied to the ionization region of the detector is optimized for stable operation at room temperature and atmospheric pressure. The energy of a particles from the 241Am source can be varied by changing the flight path of the a particle from the 241Am source. The channel numbers of the experimentally-measured pulse peak positions for different energies of the…

Micropattern gaseous detectors

▪ Abstract Introduced in 1988, microstrip gas chambers perform considerably better than classic multiwire detectors. Excellent localization, high rate capability, and good granularity make them
