Paper Abstract

An exciting possibility for the GLAST main instrument is a scintillating fiber system where the properties of both a tracker and a calorimeter are combined in one type of detector module. This instrument provides all the detector capabilities required to achieve the science goals of the GLAST mission, at a substantially reduced cost compared to the baseline technology, and with the benefit of increased effective area and superior low energy angular resolution.
