Starting with a description of the operation and the characteristics of gas-filled micro-patterned radiation detectors in general, this dissertation focuses on the short and long term performance of four detector types, i.e. the MicroStrip Gas Chamber (MSGC), the MicroGap Chamber (MGC), the Compteur Trous Electrodes Redondantes (CATER) and the Gas Electron Multiplier (GEM).
