German term or phrase: Auswerteachse
In a document relating to neutron irradiation and digital detector readout system: "Die nicht-linearitäten sind besonders an beiden Detektorränden ausgeprägt. Sie sind etwa 20% im Nichtrandbereich. Es gibt aber keine Diskontinuitäten. Auch wenn weit vom Ereignis entfernt liegende PMs nur mit ihrem Rauschen beitragen, müssen diese Signale bei der Schwerpunktsbildung mit verwendet werden, damit entlang einer Auswerteachse kein Wechsel von einer Formel zur nächsten geschieht, was Diskontinuitäten erzeugt."

Thanks very much!
