Abstract

We describe recent developments of two areas of research on gaseous detectors: resistive plate chambers, aiming at best time resolution, and micro-pattern chambers, designed for high-rate tracking in hostile environments. Emphasis is put on the progress in the basic understanding of the operating features, and of the underlying physical processes. Some examples of applications of detectors outside particle physics are also provided.
