Paper Abstract

Construction of cylindrical ionization chamber with shielding mesh is considered. The chamber has sensitive volume 2 liters filled by xenon with pressure about 50 atm. Main characteristics of this detector such as energy resolution and efficiency of gamma-rays with energy 0.1 - 2.0 MeV are presented. It is shown that the detector energy resolution for Eequals0,662 MeV line at optimal electric field strength in the chamber is about 4%. Comparison of experimentally measured characteristics of this detector and standard scintillator NaI(T1) is fulfilled. Applications of the high pressure xenon cylindrical ionization chamber with a shielding mesh in geology, geophysics and diagnostic of oil and gas wells are considered.
