Modern gas avalanche detectors are instruments of choice for detecting single charges deposited in gas or emitted from thin solid radiation converters. We discuss principal factors governing the operation of gas avalanche photomultipliers, combining solid photocathodes with advanced micro-pattern gaseous multipliers and summarize the properties of UV photocathodes and film-protected photocathodes for the visible spectral range. We review recent progress and applications of single-charge counting detectors and discuss in some detail their application to nanodosimetry and its relevance to studies of radiation damage to DNA
