X-Ray Imaging Telescope: Balloon Data from INPE, in Brazil
Entry ID: TIMAX

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This set contains 20 minutes of data obtained by 35 NaI detectors
(TOTAL AREA of approx. 280 sq. cm) flown on the imaging telescope
TIMAX. It is stored in 64 kbyte binary files. Each file has all the
digitized spectra of each detector.

Each detector is coupled to a photomultiplier and the output pulses
are height-analyzed in 32 channels covering the nominal energy
range of 30-100 Kev.
