The Oriented Scintillation Spectrometer Experiment (OSSE) on the Arthur Holly Compton Gamma Ray Observatory satellite uses four actively-shielded NaI(Tl)-CsI(Na) phoswich detectors to provide gamma-ray line and continuum detection capability in the 0:05 ? 10 MeV energy range. The instrument includes secondary capabilities for gamma-ray and neutron detection between 10 and 250 MeV. The detectors have 3:8 11:4 (FWHM) elds-of-view deened by tungsten collimators. Each detector has an independent… CONTINUE READING
