surface gives alarm when somthing pass it

I want to make asurface that has very small thicknes with dimensions of 50cm x 5m that gives me alarm when something like small ball goes throgh it
How to do this ?
I didnot know where to post question so if it is the wrong place could the admin move it to the right place

RE: surface gives alarm when somthing pass it

There is hardly enough detail to provide an appropriate answer (and my guess is this is not a Comm/Signal Processing problem, either).

If you're truly passing through the surface, an interrupted lightbeam would be easy... a noise detector another, depending upon material a resistance measurement would be another. Reflectance change, acceleroometer, and so on.
