Figures / Tables:

Fig. 1 Fig. 1: The sketch on the left shows the 4 basic parameters of the zigzag pattern, including the pitch, zigzag period, gap width, and trace width, denoted by p, d, g, and s respectively. ($θ$, s’, and g’ are resultant parameters representing the characteristic angle, the trace width, and gapmore » width at the zigzag apex.) The sketches on the right demonstrate charge sharing and centroid calculations for a zigzag and rectangular pad readout. 6 channels are shown for each pattern with a pitch of 2mm. (The drawings on the right are to scale.)« less
