11 November 1994 High-Energy/Low-Energy Proportional Counter (HEPC/LEPC) detector systems on the SRG
Author Affiliations +
The low energy proportional counter LEPC (0.2 - 8 keV) and the high energy proportional counter HEPC (2 - 25 keV) for the Danish-Russian X-ray telescopes XSPECT/SODART are presently being tested at DSRI. The sensor principle of these detectors is based on the novel micro strip gas counter (MSGC) where the strip electrodes are deposited by photolithography onto a rigid substrate. The MSGC offers many advantages: A uniform gas gain, an excellent energy (approximately 13% at 6 keV) and position-resolutions (>> 1 mm), a fast charge collection and a low operating voltage. The energy response, imaging and background rejection performance of LEPC (82 X 82 mm) and HEPC ((sigma) equals 160 mm) will be discussed.
