Compton Imaging

The aim of this project is to develop a detector system that can create an image in gamma-rays that has a 4Pi sensitivity and requires no collimators. Physics of the interactions between gamma-rays and matter, namely of the Compton scattering process, make it possible to reconstruct the direction of the incoming photons, and thus create an image, provided that the scattering paths of gamma rays can be determined. We are applying this idea on a single planar pixelated Germanium detector and using pulse shape analysis methods to achieve the necessary position resolution.
