Paper Abstract

A new generation of proportional counter is currently being developed at MSFC. The device, known as a multistep fluorescence gated detector, combines superior energy and spatial resolution with a very high degree of background rejection to produce a versatile instrument ideally suited to x-ray astronomy in the 20-100 keV energy range.
