Paper Abstract

Many types of micropattern gas detectors (MPGD) have been used as tracking detectors in experiments with high-energy particle physics and imaging detectors, especially in the case of soft X-rays. Several advantages like high count rate capability, good spatial and energy resolution, low cost and possibility of constructing large area detectors with very small dead area make these detectors very attractive in field of particle physics. The paper presents the designing, construction and assembling of two prototype Triple Gas Electron Multiplier (Triple-GEM) detectors. These were developed for highresolution X-ray spectroscopy measurements for tokamak plasma to serve as plasma monitoring in soft X-ray region for the WEST tokamak.
