Paper Abstract

The performance of an imaging gas scintillation proportional counter is described over the energy-range from 100 eV to 10 keV. The low energy response of the detector is achieved using a driftless configuration and a thin polyimide foil as X-ray entrance window. Measurements address the linearity of its response, its energy- and spatial-resolution by exposure to a collimated X-ray beam of diameter 50 micrometers .
