Paper Abstract

The separation of large projectiles with heavy materials from decoys can be accomplished by using penetrating radiation that results in a characteristic photon emission spectra. In order for such a scheme to be successful it is necessary to develop a capable sensor of the photon emission. The UT-Dallas and UCLA groups are developing such a sensor (called the High Resolution Gamma Ray Telescope, HRGRT). This sensor uses electron drift techniques in liquid Argon and Xenon and promises to give the best angular resolution for a Compton telescope. The appropriate penetrating radiation will consist of neutrons from a pulsed isotropic source.
