The European Space Agency is planning on launching the Atmospheric Space Interactions Monitor (ASIM) within the next three years, which will be able to better detect both dark and visible lightning from space, said ostgrd, who is part of the team that is building the ASIM gamma-ray detector.
We also investigated placing an external gamma-ray detector just outside the dewar next to the photomultiplier tube (PMT)s to both monitor external rates and hopefully use the data from this detector to normalize the trapping data to minimize these systematic shifts in the backgrounds.
This meeting has always been a great opportunity to get together with old friends and to make new ones, to exchange ideas and share knowledge and experience in the nuclear science, medical imaging, and room-temperature semiconductor X-Ray and Gamma-Ray detector fields.
LJMU scientists from the Astrophysics Research Institute are at the forefront of gamma-ray research, with the robotic Liverpool Telescope on the Canary island of La Palma having a uniquely powerful capability to react rapidly to notifications from gamma-ray detector satellites -- such as NASA's Swift -- and catch the optical counterpart and fading afterglow of the explosion.
