"3-Dimensional Simulation of Electron Avalanches in Low Pressure Wire Chambers and Proportional Counters"


[ Full Article | Questions & Answers | Help | IIB Home Page ]


Monte Carlo code AVALAN was designed to simulate an electron avalanche development under any operating conditions of a proportional counter such as different gas pressures and electric fields. It alows to study any temporal and space aspects of the avalanche development. Initial simulations were performed for low pressure cylindrical counter filled with methane gas. Some results from these simulations are discussed.
