Abstract

In this work, the partition noise and the electronic noise of the Vernier anode are thoroughly analyzed based on the theory of statistical variation and error analysis. A new method calculating the inter-electrode capacitance of the Vernier anode is proposed, and the electronic noise’s effect is discussed in detail, which is useful for the optimal design of a Vernier anode in the induced charge mode. The calculated results of the inter-electrode capacitance for a 0.891 mm period Vernier anode are in good agreement with the measured results.
