Likelihood analysis for the Tracking and Imaging Gamma Ray Experiment (TIGRE) telescope

By Akyüz A., Bhattacharya D., O'Neill T.J., Samimi J. and Zych A.


TIGRE, the UCR Compton gamma-ray telescope, uses multilayers of silicon strip detectors to track Compton scattered electrons, and Csl detectors to measure the scattered photon energy and direction. In this work, using Monte-Carlo simulation, we show the improvement that can be obtained when the electron tracking feature is added to a conventional Compton telescope. In simulating a Crab-like source in a balloon-background environment, the flux sensitivity for TIGRE is enhanced by a factor of 2.5 and the source location accuracy by a factor 3 over a non-tracking design. © 2004 Elsevier B.V.
