Delay Line Detector
The Delay-Line (1D) and Cross Delay-Line (2D) Detectors are part of the acquisition chain in the 3D (x, y, t) High Count Rate Detectors.
The electromagnetic pulses generated by charge amplifiers (i.e. MicroChannel Plates) propagate through the delay lines, reaching the ends of the path at different times; these differences are used to calculate the hit position and time.
