Abstract

Abstract Making use of electrons extracted by UV photons on aluminum cathodes, the ionization threshold of the streamer mode has been measured, and a fully efficient operation range for single ionization electrons has been found. Operation conditions have been investigated for Ar-isobutane and He-isobutane gas mixtures, and 50 and 100 μm wire diameters.
