Idea for a way to beat the Landau fluctuation of energy loss (and hence fluctuation of pulse height and of Z identification in a scintillator telescope :
[sketch/picture]
drawing of two squares ((S sub 1) and (S sub 2)) on a line
(Having in mind high altitude experiments on high Z and other high energy loss particles)
The Landau spread is for each
[sketch/picture]
graph of N(S) versus increasing S, tall bell-shaped data, with "relatively sharp" start, and "long tail off" end
N(s)dS = probability of size in [8th Std S?]
