Abstract: The applications of Resistive Plate Chambers (RPCs) have recently been extended by the development of counters with time resolution below 100 ps [sigma] for minimum ionising particles. Applications to HEP experiments have already taken place and many further applications are under study. In this work, we address the operating principles of such counters along with some present challenges, with emphasis on counter ageing. Possible applications to radioisotope imaging will be outlined.
