A novel gamma-ray detector based on a liquid xenon scintillator is under development for a new experiment to search for the lepton flavor violating process μ+ → e+γ at the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI). The experiment is designed to have a sensitivity down to 10-14 branching ratio. We constructed a prototype detector with an active volume of 69l to demonstrate the performance of the proposed detector for high-energy gamma rays of around 50 MeV. After a test of the cryogenic system for the prototype detector, we have begun studies with the prototype using a gamma-beam up to 40 MeV from the laser Compton backscattering facility at the TERAS electron storage ring of the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST).
