    Abstract

    The scintillation response to an α source (241Am) and the ionization yield in pure gaseous xenon and its mixtures with 0.2-2% of methane were measured at a pressure of 26 atm and different values of reduced electric field E/N. Both light and ionization yields in xenon were shown to decrease with increasing percentage of methane.
