A Gas Proportional Scintillation Counter based on a dual-cathode Microstrip Plate covered with a CsI film is described. This new dual-cathode technique has the advantage of increasing the VUV sensitive area of the Microstrip Plate. A detailed description of the technique is presented together with a discussion of the performance. The results obtained for a xenon filled Gas Proportional Scintillation Counter show an improvement of the energy resolution for 5.9 keV X-rays from 12.7%, for a single cathode device, to 11.1% for the dual-cathode device.
