17 Dr. Lothar Naumann I I Institut of Radiation Physics I Mitglied der Helmholtz-Gemeinschaft Seite 17 X-rays at ELBE are comparable to prompt gammas, generated by proton beams in human tissue GEANT4 simulations and experimental results of the detector efficiency have been compared. The results are in agreement for fluxes of 10 4 cm - ²s -1 and amounts to 1.5 % per gap RPC with float glass electrodes shows in comparison to ceramics system an degradation of the rate capability by a factor of 20 The time resolution is constant and amounts to FWKH = 150 ps up to the flux of 10 5 cm - ²s -1 Conclusions
