Title: High speed curved position sensitive detector

Abstract

This patent describes a high speed curved position proportional detector for x-rays. It comprises an anode array formed of a plurality of parallel metal wires in a plane with each wire arranged to be substantially perpendicular to a path of the x-rays; a cathode substrate fabricated from an insulating material oriented substantially parallel with the anode array. A cathode serpentine-shaped meander formed upon the substrate, the legs of the cathode meander arranged to fan outwardly from a center point along one lengthwise edge of the substrate, the legs being about 10 to 15 m wide and spaced about 100 to 150 m apart, the cathode meander having a total resistance from a first end to a further end of about 25,000 ohms.
