Origins of the Residual Pulse Height Deficit in Propane-Filled Gas Ionization Detectors

Dall (previously Weijers), Tessica; Timmers, Heiko; Elliman, Robert


This work investigates the origins of the residual pulse height deficit in gas ionization detectors. It is motivated by the recent observation that the species dependence of gas detector response cannot be accounted for solely by considering the energy loss of the ions in the detector window and non-ionizing energy loss processes in the detector gas. It was found that the residual pulse height deficit is approximately proportional to the square of the ionization density. However, only a weak...[Show more]
