<p>This is a plot of the <em>surrogate function</em> that describes the relationship between the number of Time-over-Threshold (ToT) counts and the energy measured by the Timepix detector [1], as described by Jakubek et al [2, 3]. The function plotted uses calibration constants obtained for pixel 00000 of the LUCID experiment's TPX 0 detector, where <em>a</em> = 2.24852, <em>b</em> = 80.6086, <em>c</em> = 252.004 and <em>t</em> = -0.62902.</p> <p>This figure is <strong>I000164</strong> in the CERN@school document inventory.</p> <p>[1] X.
