A Mini-Pad Chamber

Part of the Ettore Majorana International Science Series book series (EMISS, volume 14)


A miniature pad chamber is described that may be capable of counting at high rates and a large number of simultaneous tracks. It provides unambiguous space points with high spatial resolution in two dimensions. The chamber is designed to use the maximum rate capability that a chamber wire can provide.
