The HILT sensor has been designed to measure heavy ion elemental abundances, energy spectra, and direction of incidence in the mass range from helium to iron and in the energy range 4 to 250 MeV/nucleou. With its large geometric factor of 60 cm’sr the sensor is optimized to provide compositional and spectral measurements for low intensity cosmic rays, Le. for small solar energetic particle events and for the anomalous component of cosmic rays. The instrument combines a large area ion drift… CONTINUE READING
