    • Abstract

       

      We are currently developing and studying the performance of glass RPC prototypes, under the INO detector R & D programme. While we were successful in building and characterising a large number of chambers using local glass, these have met with severe aging problems after a few months of continuous operation. We have then built a couple of RPCs using a Japanese glass. We report in this paper on our long term stability tests of these RPCs. We also present some of our recent results on tracking of cosmic ray muons in a stack of glass RPCs.
