Abstract
A new generation of large area, high resolution and improved sensitivity gamma ray telescopes are under development for the post-CGRO era in gamma ray astronomy and astrophysics, applying silicon strip detectors, scintillating fibers with position sensitive photomultipliers and cryogenic liquid drift chambers. A short review of these novel technologies is presented.
