Gamma-ray Polarimetry *

  title={Gamma-ray Polarimetry *},
  author={Hiroyasu Tajima},
An astrophysics application of a low noise Double-sided Silicon Strip Detector (DSSD) is described. A Semiconductor Multiple-Compton Telescope (SMCT) is being developed to explore the gamma-ray universe in the 0.1– 20 MeV energy band. Excellent energy resolution and polarization sensitivity are key features of the SMCT. We have developed prototype modules… CONTINUE READING
