研究成果: Contribution to conferencePaper


The ASTRO-E Hard X-ray Detector utilized GSO/BGO well-type phoswich counters in compound-eye configuration [1], to achieve an extremely low background level of a few ×10-5 counts s-1cm-2keV-1. The GSO scintillators installed in the BGO active shield wells observes 30-600 keV photons, while silicon PIN diodes of 2 mm thick placed in front of each GSO crystal covers 10 - 60 keV photons with energy resolution of ∼3.5 keV FWHM. The design goals both of low background and high energy resolution in the hard X-ray bands were confirmed to be achieved through the preflight calibration experiments.
