Developing gamma-ray tracking with a segmented Ge detector
Presented by Dr. Elena LAWRIE on 9 Jul 2013 from 15:40 to 16:00
Type: Oral Presentation
Track: Track B - Nuclear, Particle and Radiation Physics
This presentation is an overview of the basic techniques that make possible to trace the gamma-ray interactions inside a segmented Ge detector and reconstruct the gamma-ray trajectory. The presentation will outline the process of developing gamma-ray tracking in general and also the plans for developing the position sensitivity of the iThemba LABS segmented clover detector. The talk is intended as an introduction to four more presentations on this topic, which will discuss the progress made so far and the plans for the future. In addition ideas about possible applications of this new generation gamma-ray detector will be presented.
