The Gamma-ray Large Area Space Telescope (GLAST) is a space mission with anticipated launch in 2007. The aim is to study the gamma-ray sky in the energy range 10 keV – 300 GeV. The GLAST electromagnetic calorimeter is 8.6X0 deep and has a total of 1536 CsI(Tl) crystals each measuring 32.62.x2.67x1.99 cm3. The crystals are read out at both ends with PIN photodiodes.As a part of the quality control procedure during crystal production, samples from all CsI(Tl) boules were irradiated with gamma… CONTINUE READING
