Status of the Streamer Mode in Gas Detectors
Author(s) V. I. Razin*
This work shows the results of a streamer discharge mode studies in various gas detectors developed up-to-date. The results are based on a new experimental data from high-speed thin-gap gas detector application developments as well as on basic knowledge of multi-wire devices operations.
