The CALET Gamma-ray Burst Monitor (CGBM) is the secondary scientific instrument of the CALET mission to be attached to the ISS, sensitive to X and gamma-rays from 7 keV to 20 MeV. The scientific goal of the CGBM is to search out a clue to radiation mechanisms of gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) by obtaining very broadband spectra from optical to TeV gamma-rays together with the primary instrument, the calorimeter (CAL) sensitive to GeV-TeV gamma-rays, and the star camera (ASC). The CGBM sensor consists… Expand
