Paper Abstract

A mosaic of high-purity Ge detectors, associated with a mask a few meters above the detector plane, are very promising for future high-energy resolution and source localization astrophysics experiments. This paper describes such a detector and gives its energy resolution vs FET temperature as well as measurements on its localization accuracy. A computer simulation and image reconstruction based on a delta decoding method are also presented.
