5th Symposium on Large TPCs for Low Energy Rare Event Detection and Workshop on Neutrinos from Supernovae, Paris : France (2010)
RD51, a world-wide collaboration for the development of Micro Pattern Gaseous Detectors
M. Chefdeville1
RD51 Collaboration(s)

Originally introduced to improve the rate capability of traditional wire chambers, Micro Pattern Gaseous Detectors (MPGD) actually demonstrate many more benefits. Be it for medical and industry imaging, collider experiments or more interestingly in the framework of this conference for the search of rare events, they are the subject of constant research and development in several laboratories over the world. The RD51 collaboration has been coordinating this work since April 2008 and is meant to advance the technological development and application of MPGD. The collaboration is presented and emphasis is put on its latest achievements which do make these devices an attractive option for the detection of low energy rare events: the possibility to instrument large area and to detect UV photons.
