  • Case Study: GE4000 Observes Gamma-Ray Phenomena
    The Sternberg Astronomical Institute of the Moscow State University in Russia uses Prosilica GE4000 GigE Vision cameras to detect and measure gamma ray bursts. The scientific team of the Sternberg Astronomical Institute of Moscow State University supported by the Moscow-based company "Optics
  • UCSC Press Release: UCSC scientists tapped to work on gamma-ray telescope
    Contact: Tim Stephens (831) 459-2495; UCSC physicists and astronomers tapped to work on space-based gamma ray telescope scheduled for 2005 launch SANTA CRUZ, CA--Scientists at the University of California, Santa Cruz, are now involved in several aspects of NASA's Gamma ray Large Area Space
  • Hubble Tracks the Fading Optical Counterpart of a Gamma-Ray Burst
    NASA's refurbished Hubble Space Telescope has made an important contribution toward solving one of astronomy's greatest enigmas by allowing astronomers to continue watching the fading visible-light counterpart of a gamma-ray burst (GRB), one of the most energetic and mysterious events
  • Gamma-Ray Bursts Common To Normal Galaxies? Hubble Data Offer New Clues and Puzzles
    Nature's most powerful explosions, gamma-ray bursts, occur among the normal stellar population inside galaxies scattered across the universe. This means that, on average, a gamma-ray burst goes off once every few million years inside our Milky Way galaxy. The energy released in such a titanic
  • Hubble Stays on Trail of Fading Gamma-Ray Burst Fireball, Results Point to Extragalactic Origin
    New NASA Hubble Space Telescope observations of the ever-fading fireball from one of the universe's most mysterious phenomena a gamma-ray burst is reinforcing the emerging view that these titanic explosions happen far away in other galaxies, and so are among the most spectacularly energetic
  • Spectral Performance of Mercuric Iodide Gamma Ray Detectors at Elevated Temperatures
    The development of mercuric iodide (HgI2) as a solid state radiation detector material is motivated by the need for compact spectrometer grade detectors, which operate at ambient temperatures. Among candidates for solid state detectors, mercuric iodide possesses the highest intrinsic resistivity
