      Official web page for GLAST (Gamma Ray Large Area Space Telescope). The next generation of gamma ray detectors, this telescope will be able to view large areas at a time, making it easier to "catch" bursts when they happen. The site gives details about instrumentation and mission goals. Appropriate for high school. At only billion light years distant, GRB A (gamma-ray bursts are named after the year-month-day of discovery) was one for the record books, and in the top five percent of the closest.

    The Physics Behind the CosmicWatch Desktop Muon Detectors by Spencer Nicholas Gaelan Axani PowerEngineeringTechnologiesDip,SouthernAlbertaInstituteof. Galactic Astrophysics and Gamma-Ray Astronomy The next generation of gamma-ray detectors will probably not be in operation for another 5 to 10 years, and therefore it is hoped that the proceeding of this meeting can be used (in the intermediate time) as a basis for further studies, as a stimulation for more theoretical work and as an Brand: Springer Netherlands.

    High-quality data on x-ray, gamma ray, and cosmic ray sources were the rewards returned by three High Energy Astronomy Observatories. HEAO was NASA's most expensive physics and astronomy project of the s and one of its most productive. The Orbiting Solar Observatory series, begun in the s, took on a new look with OSO 8. NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory is a telescope specially designed to detect X-ray emission from very hot regions of the Universe such as exploded stars, clusters of galaxies, and matter around black holes. Because X-rays are absorbed by Earth's atmosphere, Chandra must orbit above it, up to an altitude of , km (86, mi) in space.

A gamma ray, or gamma radiation (symbol γ or), is a penetrating electromagnetic radiation arising from the radioactive decay of atomic consists of the shortest wavelength electromagnetic waves and so imparts the highest photon energy.

Astro-E is the x-ray satellite to be launched in the year by Inst. of Space & Astronautical Science. This report deals with the design and expected performance of the hard x-ray detector (HXD), one of the 3 experiments aboard by: A concept for observation from space of the highest energy cosmic rays above 10 20 eV with a satellite-borne observatory has been considered.

A maximum-energy auger (air)-shower satellite (MASS) would use segmented lenses (and/or mirrors) and an array of imaging devices (about 10 6 pixels) to detect and record fluorescent light profiles of cosmic ray cascades in the by: 1.

Many future space missions will use cadmium zinc telluride (CdZnTe) gamma-ray detectors because their operation at room temperature makes compact, lightweight detector systems possible. Even though instruments for space using CdZnTe detectors have already been built, the effect of the high- energy particle space environment on these detectors has not been measured.

The standard picture for their presence in cosmic rays is that they are produced in collisions of cosmic ray protons with nuclei in the interstellar medium, via the reaction, where A represents a nucleus:Classification: Antibaryon.

The Cosmic-RaY Platform Definitive measurements in several important areas of cosmic-ray astronomy require exposures of massive ( kg) detectors with large collection areas ( m2 sr) in Earth orbit for periods of at least 1 year.

Gamma radiation, also known as gamma rays, and denoted by the Greek letter γ, refers to electromagnetic radiation of extremely high frequency and therefore high energy per photon.

Gamma rays are ionizing radiation, and are thus biologically hazardous. They are classically produced by the decay from high energy states of atomic nuclei (gamma decay), but are also created by other.

The main focus of this article is on the development of experimental techniques for Earth-bound gamma-ray detectors; consequently, more emphasis is given to those experiments that made an initial breakthrough rather than to the successors which often had and have a similar (sometimes even higher) scientific output as the pioneering experiments.

S UMMAR Y OF PRINCIPA ~ RECOMMENDA TI ONS 7 Ground-Based Cosmic-Ray Studies The search for the origin of high-energy cosmic rays has long been a major goal of cosmic-ray physics.

Observations with ground-based cosmic-ray shower detectors of multi-Ted gamma rays from sources such as Cygnus X-3 have provided a first glimpse of specific sources of. Theoretical radiation detectors []. Def. "a device that recovers information of interest contained in a modulated wave" is called a detector.

Def. a "device capable of registering a specific substance or physical phenomenon" is called a detector. Def. "a device used to detect, track, and/or identify high-energy particles, such as those produced by nuclear decay, cosmic radiation, or reactions. Gamma-ray spectra are very useful for the identification of radionuclides.

For example, the photopeak is usually the highest energy peak. An exception is the “doubles-peak,” which can occur at a higher-energy as it is due to the coincidence detection of two gamma-ray photons (see Section IV.C of this chapter).
