Title: Cross-strip charge multiplexing readout for differential detector arrays with capacitive row and column charge splitters

Abstract: An array of two-terminal detectors is configured to provide output signals that provide position sensitive radiation detection (e.g., outputs A and B provide vertical position and outputs C and D provide horizontal position), and which are differential (i.e., signal A+B is equal and opposite to signal C+D). Preferably, a capacitive network is employed to provide the position sensitivity. Array outputs are preferably provided to a low impedance amplifier or opto-electronic coupler.
