The gamma-ray astronomical observatory INTEGRAL, succesfully launched on 17th October 2002, carries two large gamma-ray telescopes. One of them is the coded-mask imaging gamma-ray telescope onboard the INTEGRAL satellite (IBIS) which provides high-resolution ( ≈ 12 ' ) sky images of $29^{\circ}\times29^{\circ}$ in the energy range from 15 keV to 10 MeV with typical on-axis sensitivity of ≈ 1 mCrab at 100 keV (3 σ , 10 6  s exposure). We report here the general description of the IBIS coded-mask…

The INTEGRAL IBIS/ISGRI System Point Spread Function and source location accuracy

The imager on board INTEGRAL (IBIS) presently provides the most detailed sky images ever obtained at energies above 30 keV. The telescope is based on a coded aperture imaging system which allows to

Detection of Hard X-Ray Emission from the Galactic Nuclear Region with INTEGRAL

This Letter presents the first results of an observational campaign to study the Galactic center with INTEGRAL, the International Gamma-Ray Astrophysics Laboratory. Mosaicked images were constructed

INTEGRAL/IBIS 7-year All-Sky Hard X-ray Survey - I. Image reconstruction

This paper is the first in a series devoted to the hard X-ray whole sky survey performed by the INTEGRAL observatory over seven years. Here we present an improved method for image reconstruction with

The First IBIS/ISGRI Soft Gamma-Ray Galactic Plane Survey Catalog

We report the first high-energy survey catalog obtained with the IBIS gamma-ray imager on board INTEGRAL. The analysis has been performed on the first-year Core Program ISGRI data comprising both

In-flight calibrations of IBIS/PICsIT ⋆

PICsIT (Pixellated Imaging CaeSium Iodide Telescope) is the high energy detector of the IBIS telescope on-board the INTEGRAL satellite. It consists of 4096 independent detection units,0.7 cm 2 in

INTEGRAL survey of the Cassiopeia region in hard X rays

We report on the results of a deep 1.6 Ms INTEGRAL observation of the Cassiopeia region performed from December 2003 to February 2004. Eleven sources were detected with the imager IBIS-ISGRI at

INTEGRAL serendipitous detection of the gamma-ray microquasar LS 5039

Abstract LS 5039 is the only X-ray binary persistently detected at TeV energies by the Cherenkov HESS telescope. It is moreover a γ-ray emitter in the GeV and possibly MeV energy ranges. To

INTEGRAL/IBIS and Swift/XRT observations of hard cataclysmic variables

The analysis of the third INTEGRAL/Imager on Board Integral Satellite (IBIS) survey has revealed several new cataclysmic variables, most of which turned out to be intermediate polars, thus confirming

Ten years of INTEGRAL observations of the hard X-ray emission from SGR 1900+14

We exploited the high sensitivity of the INTEGRAL IBIS/ISGRI instrument to study the persistent hard X-ray emission of the soft gamma-ray repeater SGR 1900+14, based on ~11.6 Ms of archival data. The
