An X-ray scanner for wire chambers


Journal Article

A study was performed on an x-ray scanner for wire chambers. The techniques to measure the position of sense wires and field wires, the gas gain and the gas flow rate inside the wire chambers using a collimated and filtered x-ray beam were also reported. The gain measurement provided important information on the uniformity of the electric field configuration.
