Study of Scintillation Light from Microstructure Based Detectors

In a previous work it bas been pointed out that a CCD readout systcrn associated to a microstructure based gaseous detector (microstrip, microgap, GEM, ctc.) can be used for non destructive testing

In a previous work it has been pointed out that scintillation light, extending up to the infrared, emitted in microstructure based gaseous detectors (microstrips, microgaps, GEMs, etc.) can be used

Imaging detectors based on the gas electron multiplier scintillation light

We have developed a novel type of two-dimensional, large area, low granularity gaseous position sensitive detector using a gas electron multiplier foil (GEM) and a standard CCD camera with glass

Fabrication of GEM Detector and X-ray Image Acquisition Based upon its Scintillation Lights

The gas electron multiplier (GEM), placed in the drift volume of a conventional gas detector, is a conceptually simple device for producing a large gas gain by concentrating the drift electric field

Imaging 55Fe electron tracks in a GEM-based TPC using a CCD readout

Images of resolved 5.9 keV electron tracks produced from 55Fe X-ray interactions are presented for the first time using an optical readout time projection chamber (TPC) . The corresponding energy

Performance of a tracking device based on the GEM scintillation

A tracking device based on gas electron multiplier scintillation using a high-resolution cooled charge-coupled device (CCD) camera was developed and images of single alpha tracks are presented.

2D dosimetry in a proton beam with a scintillating GEM detector.

The characterization of the scintillating GEM detector is reported in terms of those properties that are of particular importance in relative dose measurements, e.g. response reproducibility, dose dependence, dose rate dependence, spatial and time response, field size dependence, response uniformity.
