|Abstract:||A novel MicroMegas detector based on microbulk technology with an embedded XY strip structure was developed, obtained by segmenting both the mesh and the anode in perpendicular directions. This results in a very low-mass device with good energy and spatial resolution capabilities. Such a detector is practically “transparent” to neutrons, being ideal for in-beam neutron measurements and will be used as quasi-online neutron beam profiler at neutron Time-of-Flight facilities. Dedicated front end electronics and acquisition system have been developed and used. The first studies of this new detection system are presented and discussed.|
