18 October 1996 Use of Compton kinematics on the IBIS telescope
Author Affiliations +
The multi-layer discrete structure of the IBIS telescope onboard the INTEGRAL gamma-ray satellite allows the application of the Compton kinematics for improving the signal to noise ratio of the images which are obtained by mens of a coded mask coupled to a position sensitive detector. Two steps of data selection based on Compton kinematics are envisaged: one to be operated aboard the satellite and the other one which will be applied on ground. The possible reduction of data volume to be transmitted to ground, background rejection, and signal to noise enhancement are shown.
