There are several applications and studies in fundamental research, which require the detection of VUV light at cryogenic temperatures. For these applications, we have developed and successfully tested special designs of gaseous detectors with solid photocathodes able to operate at low temperatures: sealed gaseous detectors with MgF2 windows and windowless detectors. We have experimentally demonstrated that both primary and secondary (due to the avalanche multiplication inside liquids) scintillation light can be recorded by photosensitive gaseous detectors. The results of this work may allow one to significantly improve the operation of some noble liquid TPCs.
