抄録

It is quite important to obtain wide band spectra of gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) at the same time in order to probe the emission processes or the structure of GRBs. An avalanche photo diode (APD) is a compact photon sensor with an internal gain of 100. We have developed an X-ray/gamma-ray detector using a back-illuminated reach-through APD (5×5mm2) optically coupled with a conventional CsI(Tl) scintillator, which covers typically from 1 keV to 1 MeV. Further, we developed a 1-dimensional array of the 8/16 APDs (net 16×20 mm2) for the purpose of an imaging photon detector to be used in future GRB missions. Here we present the current status and performance of our hybrid detector.
