Title: Curved location-sensitive proportional counter tube

Abstract

A curved location- or positionally-sensitive proportional counter tube having a trough-shaped cathode in a counting chamber is described. A curved resiliently elastic wire forming the anode extends longitudinally through the curved counting chamber in conformance with the curvature of the latter. Suitable fastening arrangements engage the ends of the wire so as to mount the wire in asymmetrical relationship to a counter tube window and equidistantly from the side walls of the cathode trough.
