Paper Abstract

IAS, a CNR institute for space research in Astrophysics, in collaboration with IKI on their invitation, has developed, and is now under building, an X-Ray Imaging and Spectroscopic telescope as the high energy instrument on board the Observatory Spectrum X-Gamma. The scientific aim of this instrument, named MART-LIME, will be the detailed study of X-Ray sources emitting in the energy range 5 - 150 keV. The MART-LIME telescope is a follow up in a series of X-Ray detectors that have been developed, built at IAS and flown on board stratospheric balloons. It consists of a high pressure gas operated multiwire proportional counter with bidimensional spectral resolution coupled with a coded mask placed at 2.3 meter.
