Paper Abstract

The gamma-ray large area space telescope (GLAST) mission is planned as the next major challenge in high-energy astrophysics. FiberGLAST is one of the technologies being developed for GLAST and is using arrays of scintillation fibers for the pair-tracking and calorimeter detectors. The instrument requires optical detectors with high gain, low cost, and low power to read out the large number of individual fibers.
