ASTROPARTICLE PHYSICS   30(2) 72-84   Sep 2008   [Refereed]
We describe a new balloon-borne instrument (PoGOLite) capable of detecting 10% polarisation from 200 mCrab point-like sources between 25 and 80 keV in one 6-h flight. Polarisation measurements in the soft gamma-ray band are expected to provide a p...

The energy response of plastic scintillators (Eljen Technology EJ-204) to polarized soft gamma-ray photons below 100 keV has been studied, primarily for the balloon-borne polarimeter, PoGOLite. The response calculation includes quenching effects d...

The Large Area Telescope (Fermi/LAT, hereafter LAT), the primary instrument on the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope (Fermi) mission, is an imaging, wide field-of-view (FoV), high-energy gamma-ray telescope, covering the energy range from below 20 M...

ASTROPHYSICAL JOURNAL   726(2)    Jan 2011   [Refereed]
We report an analysis of the interstellar gamma-ray emission in the third Galactic quadrant measured by the Fermi Large Area Telescope. The window encompassing the Galactic plane from longitude 210 degrees to 250 degrees has kinematically well-def...

We observed the supernova remnant Cygnus Loop, G8.7-0.1, and W44 with the Large Area Telescope (LAT) on board the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope and found GeV gamma-ray emission from the surrounding material around them. The gamma-ray data are we...

In order to investigate the energy and spatial distribution of Galactic cosmic-rays(CRs), we extensively analyzed Galactic diffuse gamma-ray emission. The outcome can be summarized by the following three discoveries :[ 1] The energy spectrum of Ga...

Images obtained by the Suzaku X-ray mirrors have been deconvolved by a program ; an upper limit to artifact polarization possibly introduced by the hard X-ray mirror has been obtained ; and a new highly sensitive X-ray polarimeter (PoGOLite) has b...
