There is an experimental gap in the study of the non-thermal universe in the photon energy range from 300 kev to 100 MeV. We have analized the performence of a detector with unprecedent sensitivity, angular and energy resolution and combined with polarimetric capability to study of the most powerful Galactic and extragalactic sources and with a line sensitivity in the MeV energy range two...

High-energy astrophysics polarimetry may greatly benefit from e-ASTROGAM mission proposal legacy or from AMEGO future mission, since so far limited polarimetric measurements were performed in this domain, measured by instruments that were not designed or optimized for polarimetry. These space observatory is composed by semiconductor tracker, calorimeter, and an anticoincidence system,...

The Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA) will be the largest ground-based very high-energy gamma-ray detection observatory in the world with more than one hundred telescopes located in the Northern and Southern Hemispheres (La Palma, Canary Islands and currently proposed at Paranal, Chile). The energy coverage, in the southern CTA array, will extend up to 300TeV thanks to a large number (up to 70)...
162. SiPM optical modules for the Schwarzschild- Couder Medium Size Telescopes proposed for the CTA observatory
Emanuele Fiandrini (PG)
Silicon Photomultipliers (SiPMs) are excellent devices to detect the faint and short Cherenkov light emitted in high energy atmospheric showers, and therefore suitable for use in Imaging Air Cherenkov Telescopes. The high density NUV SiPMs (NUV-HD3) produced by Fondazione Bruno Kessler (FBK) in collaboration with INFN were used to equip optical modules for a possible upgrade of the prototype...

The Large Magellanic Cloud with the Cherenkov Telescope Array Abstract The CTA Consortium1, represented by Mabel Bernardos2 Co-Authors: María Benito3, Elena Fedorova4, Fabio Iocco3, Salvatore Mangano2, Olga Sergijenko5. The Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) is a spiral galaxy, satellite of the Milky way with a high star formation activity. It represents a unique laboratory for studying...

The accumulation and effective mixture of relativistic particles during their propagation through the interstellar magnetic fields results in the formation of the so-called "sea" of galactic Cosmic Rays (CRs). The level and the energy distribution of the CR sea is determined by the operation of all galactic accelerators over the confinement time of CRs in the Galactic Disk. The homogeneity of...
