Figure 2

The number of sticks of length l needed to cover the particle tracks.

(a)

Normalized by , is the wavelength. From below at large values of , , 0.13, 0.24, 0.34, 0.65, 0.86, and 1.06.

(b)

The curves are collapsed into one scaling function, by means of a rescaling of the length.

(c)

The normalized number of sticks for (unbroken line), (dashed line), and (dotted line), plotted versus for , using the reduced length as the parameter.
