The Einstein Probe will enable systematic survey and characterisation of high-energy transients at unprecedented sensitivity, spatial resolution, grasp and monitoring cadence, aiming at multi-wavelength follow-up observations by the world-wide community. Expand
The Low Energy X-ray telescope (LE) onboard the Insight-HXMT astronomy satellite
The low energy (LE) X-ray telescope is one of the three main instruments of the Insight-Hard X-ray Modulation Telescope (Insight-HXMT). It is equipped with Swept Charge Device (SCD) sensor arraysExpand
A gain control and stabilization technique for Silicon Photomultipliers in low-light-level applications around room temperature
An experimental setup in dark condition was established to investigate the temperature and bias voltage dependence of the Multi-Pixel Photon Counter (MPPC), one type of the SiPM developed byExpand
Background model for the Low-Energy Telescope of Insight-HXMT
Accurate background estimation is essential for spectral and temporal analysis in astrophysics. In this work, we construct the in-orbit background model for the High-Energy Telescope (HE) of the HardExpand
Deprojected analysis of Abell 1835 observed with Chandra and compared with XMM-Newton
Using a deprojection technique, we study the X-ray properties of the galaxy cluster Abell 1835 observed with Chandra, including temperature, abundance, electron density, gas mass fraction, and totalExpand
Imaging and spectrum diagnostics of air arc plasma characteristics
This paper is devoted to the study of the air arc plasma characteristics and consists of two parts. An optical high-speed imaging system is integrated with pressure sensing, arc current, and voltageExpand
Overview to the Hard X-ray Modulation Telescope (Insight-HXMT) Satellite
An overview of the HXMT mission, including payload, core sciences, ground calibration/facility, ground segment, data archive, software, in-orbit performance, calibration, background model, observations and some preliminary results are given. Expand
