Paper Abstract

An active program is underway at MSFC to develop microstrip proportional counters for x-ray astronomy. This work can be divided into two categories: 1) the current fabrication and testing of a large area device (30 cm x 30 cm) for a balloon program and 2) an investigation into the general properties of microstrip proportional counters to provide optimized devices for future missions. This paper includes results from both these areas.
