- The article describes the final conclusions of the RD-28 collaborative
effort to develop the Micro-Strip Gas Chambers (MSGCs). The MSGCs have
attracted a lot of interest due to many promising features: good position
accuracy and two-track resolution, high rate capability and low cost. The
article describes solutions to many difficulties, such as stability
problems observed at high radiation rates attributed to substrate charging
up and modifications, and ageing due to gas polymerization.
