Petris, M.; Petrovici, M.; Simion, V.; Bartos, D.; Caragheorgheopol, G.; Dohrmann, F.; Hildenbrand, K. D.; Kämpfer, B.; Kotte, R.; Naumann, L.; Stach, D.; Williams, M. C. S.; Wüstenfeld, J.

We present the prototype of a Resistive Plate Counter equipped with electrodes made from Pestov Glass (~ 1010 Ω cm). It is aimed as solution for TOF subdetector of CBM experiment at the future FAIR facility in Darmstadt. Details of the design and the construction are introduced. Results of tests with radioactive sources and of in-beam investigations on time resolution and counting rate capability are discussed.
