GEM Studies for LCTPC

Hallermann, Lea ; Beck, Jeannine


Abstract: The LCTPC collaboration is developing a time projection chamber (TPC) for a future linear collider. In the ILD concept for an ILC detector a TPC is foreseen as main tracking device. In order to get measurable signals on the anode, the primary electrons, produced by charged particles traversing the TPC, have to be multiplied. For this purpose gas electron multipliers (GEMs) can be used. Studies of these GEMs are performed at the DESY FLC group and presented in the following.
