Abstract
The potential performance characteristics of a liquid Xe proportional counter are discussed. Benefits in terms of spatial resolution, energy range, operating voltage, and energy resolution are possible. Practical problems, such as readout, purity, microstrip charging, and charge recombination, are reviewed. A preliminary observation of a gain of approximately 10 using a microstrip detector in liquid Xe is reported.
