Over the last few years irsn has been developing a small tissue equivalent proportional counter (TEPC) with multi-element geometry for personal radiation protection monitoring. This paper presents the last prototype, which is insensitive to microphony, and the experimental results. Numerical modelling results using CERN codes are partly presented and allow an understanding of the nuclear and electrostatic physics involved in a TEPC.
