    Gamma-rays coming from space are mostly absorbed by the Earth's gamma-ray astronomy could not develop until it was possible to get our detectors above all or most of the atmosphere, using balloons or spacecraft. The first gamma-ray telescope carried into orbit, on the Explorer XI satellite in , picked up fewer than cosmic gamma-ray photons. Very-large-area X-ray detectors for survey instruments: square-meter area capability; response from keV; ultra-low power (10 microW/channel). Significant improvements in wide band gap materials, individual detectors, and detector arrays for UV and EUV applications.

    The current study suggests that the solar gamma ray, X-ray, beta, and EUV emissions could possibly from excited atoms of radioisotopes that can take place even at room temperature. And solar EUV line spectrum reported is in conformity to this [18]. The author has succeeded in explaining how valence excitation takes place leading to UV dominant. This subtopic covers detector requirements for a broad range of wavelengths from UV through to gamma ray for applications in Astrophysics, Earth Science, Heliophysics, and Planetary Science. Requirements across the board are for greater numbers of readout pixels, lower power, faster readout rates, greater quantum efficiency, and enhanced energy.

X-ray astronomy, Study of astronomical objects and phenomena that emit radiation at X-ray wavelengths. Because Earth’s atmosphere absorbs most X-rays, X-ray telescopes and detectors are taken to high altitudes or into space by balloons and spacecraft. In detectors aboard sounding rockets showed that the Sun gives off X-rays, but it is a weak source; it took 30 more.

The discovery of x-ray emission from single main- sequence stars of all types at x-ray lumiosity levels far above the previous theoretical expectations was a major surprise that has forced a complete reassessment of theories for stellar x-ray emission and opened an impor- tant new approach to the study of stellar evolution.

The Question. Where could I find some pictures of UV radiation (if it's possible). Please send me the URL address. The Answer. High-energy at the HEASARC covers the energy range of eV on up, X-rays and gamma-rays, which is beyond what most astronomers consider to be the UV.

However, if you are open minded about it, we have some great images from the soft X-ray. Large area (m 2) X-ray detectors with 85%). Improve beyond CdZnTe detectors using micro-calorimeter arrays at hard X-ray, low gamma-ray bands (above 10 keV and Below 80 keV).

Improvement of spatial resolution for the hard x-ray band up to 10 and ultimately to 5 arcsecond resolution. X-Ray and Gamma Ray Astronomy Detectors X-rays and gamma rays from astronomical sources are ab-sorbed in the Earth's atmosphere and cannot be observed on the ground. Their detection and observations must be done from above the atmosphere using rockets or satellites.
