Micropattern gaseous detectors (MPGD) are a recent technology, applied in the construction of large area detectors, with good spatial and energy resolution, as well as high counting rate capability. Research in MPGD has gained a large momentum and has been giving valuable contribution in many High Energy Physics Experiments over the last few years. This technology is a front edge in rad...
Gas Electron Multipliers - GEM - have been chosen for many High Energy Physics experiments due to their interesting features that include the possibility of very large sensitive areas and fair energy and position resolutions. One of the most interesting effects that influence the selection of these detectors for such scientific experiments is their intrinsic capacity to suppress the ion...
Micropattern Gaseous Detectors (MPGD) are a recent technology, completely new in Brazilian research institutions. The popularity of these detectors has been growing thanks to their intrinsic simultaneous position and energy resolution capability. Thanks to thesse features, these detectors compete directly with other detection concepts, in application requiring large detection areas, suc...
Thick-GEMs are structures of the type Micropattern Gaseous Detectors - MPGD - consisting of printed circuit boards with a thickness of 0.5mm, with 0.5mm diameter holes drilled in a hexagonal matrix with a pitch of typically 1mm. They work as radiation detectors by emerging them in a suitable gas mixture and by applying a potential difference between both sides, generating a very high el...
