Abstract

This article describes measurements of the electron drift and diffusion parameters in gas mixtures, suited for application in a microstrip gas counter. The aims were to optimize for position resolution, detection efficiency and response time. The measurements were done in mixtures of Ar, CF4, C2H6, Xe, CO2 and DME by using a pulsed UV laser beam. We report results from tests in a particle beam for efficiency and position resolution of the counter using the two gases found to be most promising in the laser tests.
