Paper Abstract

We propose a new design of a hard X-ray and soft gamma-ray telescope spectrometer in the energy domain of 30 keV to 200 keV with reasonable spatial, temporal, and energy resolution for possible space flight missions. This design incorporates a Uniformly Redundant Array (URA) mask in the front end and the Low Intensity X-ray Imaging Scope (Lixiscope) developed in our laboratory as the imaging spectrometer. Using a newly acquired intensifier tube with a digitizing anode, preliminary results indicate that such a complete hard X-ray and soft gamma-ray telescope spectrometer system is indeed feasible.
