Title Gain stabilisation in proportional counters
Abstract In studying the sensitivity of the gain of flow gas counters to ambient conditions it is found that a simple model of the avalanche process can be adapted to give an excellent description of the dependence of the gas gain on pressure (P) and temperature (T) around ambient. Four types of detector are studied: the wire counter, the pin detector, the parallel gap detector and the gas microstrip detector. It is found that a simple linear servo equation using the variable P/T can be used to stabilise counters by adjusting the applied anode potential.
