Abstract A TPC is considered as tracking detector at a future linear collider. The LCTPC (Linear Collider TPC) collaboration has therefore constructed a prototype TPC for R&D purposes. MPGD readout structures, such as Micromegas or GEMs, are being considered for the TPC since the demands on space and momentum resolution can not be met with a traditional wire based readout. The prototype TPC is placed in a 1 Tesla magnet at DESY and tested using an electron beam. Analyses of data taken during two different measurement series, in 2009 and 2010, are presented here. The TPC was instrumented with a two layer GEM system and read out using modified electronics from the ...
