Gamma rays (570keV in addition to 1064keV) in addition to electrons (554keV in addition to 976keV) from Bi-207 deposited on the center of Cathode. Direct scintillation light read out by PMT (Hamamatsu R6041) immersed in LXe. Ionization electrons read out by charge-sensitive pre-amplifier. Charge collection 570keV 1064keV Charge collection calculated assuming W- value of 15.6 eV as long as LXe. With PMT in addition to its HV divider in the LXe, a good charge collection was achieved after several cycles of purification in addition to baking of chamber. Electron lifetime Event drift time defined with respect to the scintillation light trigger. A linear fit of the 570keV Gamma ray line shows a lifetime of about 1.5ms. Electron drift velocity at 1kV/cm is about 2mm/s 976keV electron 554keV electron 570keV gamma ray 1064 keV gamma ray Light in addition to charge correlation There is clear anti-correlation between ionization (charge) in addition to scintillation (light) in liquid xenon. Energy resolution can be improved by combining charge in addition to light signals. 570keV Gamma Rays Light collection improvement with PTFE Adding PTFE wall in addition to PTFE piece on the bottom improved the light collection efficiency. The purity level of liquid xenon is not affected by PTFE. Light spectrum of Bi-207 at zero field was obtained with the PTFE structure.

Proportional light Direct light Event wave as long as m shows both direct in addition to proportional light signals The area of the proportional light pulse is proportional to the ionization electrons. Spectrum of Bi-207 from the proportional light is compared with charge spectrum in a single phase operation (right) Lower energy threshold can be reached from proportional light Low energy x-ray from Bi-207 Electron emission in addition to proportional scintillation The negative ground state energy of quasi-free electron in liquid xenon requires an electric field to extract electron from LXe to GXe. For a full extraction of ionization electrons to gas phase, a field of 10kV/cm in the gas xenon is needed from our data. The proportional light yield is related to the field in the gas, the gas gap in addition to the gas pressure [Bolozdynya, NIM A 99] The proportional light yield has been measured as a function of reduced field (field/pressure)

Ratio between direct in addition to proportional light The ratio between proportional in addition to direct light as long as Bi-207 is measured to be about 500 at 1kV/cm drift field in addition to 4kV/cm in the gas phase. The gas pressure is around 2atm. With improved geometry in addition to control of the liquid level, we will improve light collection efficiency in addition to energy resolution, in addition to will lower the energy threshold. The ratio of proportional in addition to direct light will be measured as long as low energy electron recoils in addition to nuclear recoils with improved chamber. 570keV
