Abstract
In this report, we present results of gain studies using various gas mixtur es in a novel structure of gaseous detector called MICROMEGAS which is unde r development at Saclay. We in particular studied the maximum of gain achie vable with MICROMEGAS before the discharge. We tried various gas mixtures ( Argon, Neon, CF4) with various proportions of quencher (Isobutane, Cyclohex ane, DME). We also studied the radiation hardness of MICROMEGAS using Argon -Isobutane and CF4-Isobutane mixtures.
