Abstract

In this paper, the application of three-component gas mixtures as a working gas in Geiger-Mueller tubes was considered. In addition to the noble and quenching gas, an electronegative gas is used, at the same time, as the third component of gas mixture. This paper is mostly experimental. The experiments are carried out on the enlarged Geiger-Mueller counter tube model. By applying the similarity law for electric discharges in gases on the model and commercial Geiger-Mueller counting tubes, the model was verified. The obtained results showed that a small percentage of SF6 gas, in the working gas, stabilize operating point of Geiger-Mueller counter tubes and reduce dead time.

Key words: Geiger-Mueller counter, working gas, electronegative gas
