This item from - IEEE Conference - 2013 IEEE Nuclear Science Symposium and Medical Imaging Conference (2013 NSS/MIC) - Resistive Plate Chambers(RPCs) offer simple construction and efficient detection of charge particles over a large area with nano-second precision. Traditionally, large strips or pads that cover the entire area of induced charge are used to pick up the signal. The signal is then connected to a binary read-out. This approach gives moderate spatial resolution, typically of the order of a centimetre. However using fine-pitch pick-up strips, with the induced signal spread over several strips and analogue read-out, allows much better spatial resolution to be obtained than is possible with wide strips and binary readout.
