The Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS-02) will be installed on the International Space Station (ISS). The gama rays can be measured through gamma conversion intoee pair, before reaching the Silicon Tracker or by measurement of a photon hitting directly the Electromagnetic Calorimeter (ECAL). AMS-02 will provide precise gamma measurements in the GeV energy… CONTINUE READING
