Angular resolution of spark detectors of cosmic gamma radiation.
Abstract
In the present paper, the Monte Carlo method is applied to the calculation of the angular precision of highenergy gammaradiation detectors at gammaray energies of 50, 100, and 200 MeV. For gamma ray energies of 100 MeV, the angular precision of detectors in which the energies of the components are not measured separately is found to equal 0.8 degrees. In the case of exact energy determination, this value decreases to 0.3 degrees.
