The AGILE Gamma Ray Imaging Detector (GRID): a novel

The AGILE Gamma Ray Imaging Detector (GRID): a novel application of silicon tracker for astrophysics high energy photons detection Andrea Rappoldi – INFN Pavia (on behalf of AGILE collaboration) AGILE is a space mission of ASI (Italian Space Agency) which goal is to detect astrophysics photons in the energy ranges of 18 ÷ 60 keV and 30 MeV ÷ 50 GeV with imaging capability The space environment requires: • Lightness • Compactness • Low power consumption • Operation in hostile environment To detect γ-rays a silicon telescope is used. The γ-ray produces an e + e - pair The precise reconstruction (12 planes with 40 μm resolution) of the e + e - tracks allows to determine the γ direction and energy with great accuracy Field Of View (FOV) ~ 120° Point Spread Function (PSF) ~ 2.5° @ 500 MeV These goals are achieved using silicon detectors
