Abstract

Abstract It is recognized by various groups in the world that liquid xenon (LXe) is an interesting medium for the detection of γ-rays. In spite of all the experimental and theoretical effort expended during recent years, the processes that take place in this medium are not yet fully understood. We have obtained some preliminary results using an ionization chamber with a Frisch grid. This chamber could be filled with LXe and with solid xenon (SXe). We also investigated dual phase (GXe/SXe) systems. Our study will be continued with a newly developed detection cell described in this article.
