Abstract

3D streamer image in a resistive plate counter(RPC) were taken by using a glass RPC, an image intensifier and a CCD camera. Observation were simultaneously made for self-discharge in top and side view, operated in the streamer mode with various gas mixtures(Ar/Butane/HFC134a). The analysis of the streamer image might be useful for us to design the pickup strip width for the readout. In this conference we report on a shape of the streamer in top and side view as a function of gas mixing ratio.
