Paper Abstract

Recently developed high photon yielding fibers that are coupled to position sensitive photomultipliers provide good angular precision and good energy resolution in detecting gamma-rays. The UTD/UCLA High Resolution Gamma Ray Telescope consists of a scintillating plastic fiber Compton or Pair-Production Converter, a time projection gas chamber and scintillating fiber calorimeter. The calorimeter is designed to cover 7c-ray energies from 1 MeV to > 20 GeV. The space-based telescope will be used for detecting i-rays from point-like astrophysical sources and diffused cosmic 1-rays. We present here the description of the telescope, and some preliminary results from a prototype Compton converter.
