Abstract: The performance of a new VUV photosensor, based on an micro-hole and strip plate (MHSP) electron multiplier with a CsI photocathode deposited on its top electrode, is described. This photosensor presents gains above 104 when operating in an Ar-5%Xe gas mixture at 1 atm. Although the gain of a single MHSP is not sufficient for efficient detection of single photons, this simple UV photosensor may be useful for the detection of higher light levels, such as primary- and secondary scintillation in noble gases.
