Description
The Hard X-Ray Burst Spectrometer (HXRBS) was designed to
examine the role of energetic electrons in solar flares by
measuring the variations in intensity and energy of the hard
X-ray fluxes. Scintillation events in its actively collimated
CsI(Na) detector were read out every 128 ms in fifteen energy
channels between ~25 to ~500 keV. A circulating memory was able
to accumulate relatively brief periods of data during the more
intense flares with time resolution down to 1 ms. The full width
at half maximum of the field of view was approximately 40
degrees.
