Abstract

The article describes the operation of a detector of ionizing particles using metal strips deposited on an insulating substrate to collect and amplify the electrons liberated in the counter gas. It will be demonstrated, that minimum ionizing particles can be well detected with a good accuracy. A number for the stability of the gas gain will be deduced, the upper limit of the gain will be discussed. A circuit to avoid damage by micro-discharges will be presented.
