Paper Abstract

Design of the cylindrical ionization chamber with shielding mesh is considered. The chamber has sensitive volume 5 liters and is filled with xenon at the pressure about 35 atm. Main characteristics of this detector are submitted: the energy resolution, efficiency of detection and position of the peak of full absorption for various energies of gamma-rays. It is shown that the energy resolution at 662 keV is 2.9% at the optimum electrical field in the chamber. Prospects of use of cylindrical compressed xenon ionization chamber with a shielding mesh in various fields of science and engineering are considered.
