Various gaseous detectors have been developed in the last decade to study reactions and decays of radioactive nuclei. These new detectors mostly rely on the micro-pattern gaseous detector technology, but with different concepts and characteristics, depending on experimental purposes and strategies. A overview will be presented.

A centenary after the discovery of the basic principle of gas amplification, gaseous detectors are still the first choice whenever the large area coverage and low material budget is required. The introduction of the Multi-Wire Proportional Chamber by G. Charpack 1968 represent one of the glories moment in the history of gas detector (Nobel price in 1992), for it provided for the first time...
