Title
Operation of microstrip gas counters with DME-based gas mixtures
Author
Abstract
This paper reports on the operation of MicroStrip Gas Counters (MSGC) with several dimethylether (DME)-based gas mixtures. We present measurements of signal amplitude, detection efficiency and spatial resolution for minimum ionizing particles. We also show measurements of electron drift velocity and transverse diffusion coefficient in the counting gases considered. These results are discussed regarding the use of MSGC's for tracking at high-energy physics experiments that have to deal with high particle rates. (C) 1998 Published by Elsevier Science B.V.
