Abstract

Recent results from a first irradiation of multi-gap resistive plate chambers with fast neutrons are presented. The counters have been built at GSI and FZD. The experiment was performed at the The Svedberg Laboratory (TSL) in Uppsala, Sweden, utilizing a quasi-monoenergetic neutron beam with an energy E n=175 MeV. For a 2×4 gap prototype operated at E=100 kV/cm, an efficiency of (0.77 ±0.33)% was measured.
