We have demonstrated that a multiwire proportional chamber may be scaled down to improve its spatial resolution provided that every relevant distance is scaled. We have built a chamber with excellent operating characteristics with wires 0.5 mm apart. The wires are 5 μm in diameter and the chamber operates at a pressure of four atmospheres with a mixture of 80% argon and 20% CO2.
