The development of a new two‐dimensional position‐sensitive detector for use in space‐borne energetic particle spectrometers is described. The novel feature of this device is the use of interdigitated pixels to provide both dimensions of position information from a single side of the detector, while a measurement of the energy deposition is derived from the opposite side. The advantage of this approach is that both good position resolution and excellent energy resolution can be achieved while at the same time realizing significant reductions in the complexity, power, and weight of the associated read‐out electronics.
