Abstract: The Micro-Hole and Strip Plate (MHSP) is a hybrid electron multiplier which combines the working principles of a Gas Electron Multiplier (GEM) and a Micro-Strip Gas Counter (MSGC). The compact double stage electron multiplication processes found in the MHSP enables the realisation of higher gas gain than the lone GEM operation. Thermal neutron detection using gas detectors involves the use of gas with another suitable stopping gas, operated at elevated pressure to confine the products of the neutron- reaction. It is, however, well known that the gain of GEMs drops too sharply with increasing chamber pressure.
