Abstract (en)

[origin: DE19813558A1] The invention relates to a system for raising the spatial resolution of radiation detectors. The aim of the system provided for in the invention is to make it possible to raise spatial resolution in variably predefinable manners and to do so with a low number of component groups. To this end a land (2) which is not transparent to the radiation to be detected is positioned in front of each radiation detecting element (1). The width (ba) of the land is fixed such that it is a fraction of the width of the radiation detector and the land (2) can be displaced across the entire width of the detector by means of an adjustment element (3). Discrete adjustment positions of the adjustment element (3) can be set by means of a control and data line (4) and in a control and evaluation unit (5) said discrete positions can be allocated to the corresponding intensity signals of the radiation detecting element (1) transmitted via a line (6). Following numerical transformation, the intensity curve of the radiation to be detected can be represented at greater resolution in accordance with the ratio detector width to land width.
