Paper Abstract

For high luminosity hadron collider experiments, the microstrip gas chamber (MSGC) seems to be the longtime expected position detector. Its high spatial resolution (tracks of less than 35 micrometers ), high rates (particle fluxes of about 106 s-1 mm-2), good time resolution (around 50 ns), proportional gain (2 divided by 5 X 103), guaranteed lifetime (about 20 years) strongly recommended it for further investigations. The purpose of this paper is to indicate preliminary results concerning the optical investigation of MSGC electrodes, in order to check-up their quality both at the end of manufacturing process and after their use. The optoelectronic control device used for MSGC electrodes' evaluation is described.
