Abstract
We report measurements supporting the feasibility of exploiting primary scintillation in xenon as fast trigger for deconvolving off penetration depth effects of energetic X-rays (E > 20 keV). The application of the technique to high pressure position sensitive gas scintillation proportional counters when used in conjunction with wide field (30° x 30°) coded masks is discussed.
