DRDC proposal P9

P9. Proposal to Study and Improve the Radiation Hardness of Gaseous Detectors for Use at Very High Luminosities CERN/DRDC/P9). CERN.

Status: Finished

Spokesman: F. Sauli. Contactman: T. Meyer

Abstract: We propose a two-year project to study the ageing of gas-filled proportional detectors under irradiation. The goal is to obtain experimentally a better understanding of the gas polymerisation processes appearing at high radiation doses, in order to extend the lifetime of detectors well above the MRad region.
