Micromegas detectors have intrinsically a high granularity that is given by the distance between the holes in the mesh. To reflect this from the readout side an ASIC, the Timepix chip, with a pixel pitch of 55µm is used in our experiments. In the past a production process using photolithography was developed at the University of Twente on single chip basis. In this process the holes of the...

Nuclear incompressibility is an important quantity in understanding the equation of state (EOS) of nuclear matter. To extract the nuclear incompressibility of neutron rich nuclei experimentally, one has to detect particles whose kinetic energies as low as a few hundred keV. For the purpose, CNS (Univ. of Tokyo), RIKEN and other universities have developed GEM-TPC based active target, CNS...

Microbulk-Micromegas is a new generation of Micromegas (MICRO MEsh GAseous Structure) used for the detection and tracking of particles. Its simplicity, inherited from its constituent element --a double copper-clad kapton foil--, enhances its radiopurity, making it particularly well suited for rare event searches. The energy resolution is amongst the best obtained in mpgd architectures, with...
