Oneliner

Demonstrate detector design (Silicon Drift Detectors coupled to GAGG:Ce scintillator crystals) and its performance.

Description

Realize a modular X/gamma-ray monitor for transient events. Achieve a significant impact on Gamma Ray Burst (GRB) science and on the detection of Gravitational Wave (GW) electromagnetic counterparts. New generation of scintillators (e.g. GAGG:Ce) coupled with very performing Silicon Drift Detectors (SDD) and low noise Front-End-Electronics (FEE) are able to extend down to few keV the sensitivity band of the detector.
