Construction and Readout Systems for Gaseous Muography Detectors
Muography instrumentation presents a wide range of practical challenges, since the implementation environment drastically differs from the high energy physics laboratory conditions. This paper briefly overviews the pros and cons of existing technologies, and gaseous detectors in particular. The practical challenges are partially environmental, such as thermal cycling or high humidity, partially connected to the installation such as mechanical shocks, and also include the human factor stipulating minimal non-expert maintenance and troubleshooting. The presentation aims to introduce various solutions to address these challenges, with operational experience spanning five years.
