Description

This work is to progress with R&D on using Thick GEMs (ThGEM) in a gaseous time projection chamber (TPC) for directional particle detection. It has the potential to be used for low mass WIMP detection with a major area of work being to focus electrons to smaller electrodes to lower the costs in any scale up that may be required.
