We review the physical processes which may limit the performance of the ion chamber in making transmission EXAFS measurements. It is found that the recombination current loss is approximately proportional to the square of the saturation current and inversely proportional to the square of the applied voltage. We demonstrate the quality of data which can be achieved by measuring the rhodium K adsorption edge (T=30K and 290K) recorded at ESRF BM29, with noise levels approaching the photon counting limit. The EXAFS from this data has an error in the fine-structure function Delta chi approximate to 5 x 10(-5).
