We are developing large size THick GEM (THGEM)-based detectors of single photons, mainly meant for Cherenkov imaging applications. The R&D programme includes the complete characterization of the THGEM electron multipliers, the study of the aspects related to the detection of single photons and the engineering towards large size detector prototype. Our most recent achievements include:...

We have developed the GEM foils with polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) film as an insulator layer for the first time. Since the PTFE film is hard to be carbonized by arc discharge, the PTFE-GEM is expected to be strong against break down. We have experimentally nfirmed that the PTEF-GEM was really robust against discharge. The gain we achieved was larger than 2.6e+4 for 50 micron-thick PTEF-GEM...

Piggyback Micromegas consists in a novel readout architecture where the anode element is made of a resistive layer on a ceramic substrate. The resistive layer is deposited on the thin ceramic substrate by an industrial process which provides large dynamic range of resistivity (10^6 to 10^10 MΩ). The particularity of this new structure is that the active part is entirely dissociated from the...
