Paper Abstract

Many expectations are haven to the INTEGRAL satellite and the development and plan of devices in the next generation, which will exceed existing devices in a future, are also in progress. As a detector technology for the next generation, we have developed a liquid Xe Time Prjection Chamber(TPC) for MeV gamma-ray observations. It is designed to image gamma-rays in the energy range of about ~200keV to 10 MeV. The chamber consists of two sensitive volumes of 20cm×20cm×5cm. Two anode systems are at the center of effective area and made with a print substrate that has strip type anodes and induction electrodes.
