Large radius self-supporting cylindrical multiwire proportional chambers to be used at the asterix experiment at lear

Academic Article


  • We describe the construction and the performance of large cylindrical multiwire proportional chambers (roughly 2 m in diameter and 1 m long) with an anode readout system. The inner and the outer cathode planes are made of foil and foam sandwiches. At 100% efficiency average anode plateau widths of about 300 V are obtained. © 1983.
