View Resource Single Electron Detection in Quadruple-GEM Detector with Pad Readout

This pre-print from the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC) demonstrates the detection of single electrons in ethane at 1 bar through the use of four GEMs operating in tandem and coupled to pad readout. The paper, available for download in .pdf or .ps format, presents "measurements of single electron pulse height distributions, total gas gain measurement and calculation, pad-to-pad...
