Other Gamma Ray Projects
Star Base Utah
A pair of Atmospheric Cherenkov Telescopes located at the Boneavile Sea Base in Grantsville Utah. They will be used to develop intensity interferometry in the gamma ray spectrum. Check out the site here
Whipple 10 Meter
Whipple 10m telescope is
the pioneer of the Imaging Atmospheric Cherenkov technique and the predecessor of VERITAS. It is based at the
Fred Lawrence Whipple Observatory in Southern
Here at U of U we are working on:
GrISU: Atmospheric Cherenkov Simulation
GrISU is a simulation package maintained by Charlie Duke from Grinnell College, Department of Physics and by Stephan LeBohec from University of Utah, Physics department. GrISU is developed for the simulation of Atmospheric Cherenkov detector arrays and is currently updated for data analysis by Stephan LeBohec and Pierre Colin here at the University of Utah Physics department.
SGARFACE (Short GAmma Ray Front Air Cherenkov Experiment) is an experiment providing unprecedented sensitivity to gamma-ray-bursts of more than 100MeV with durations inferior to 100us. Such short gamma ray bursts have never been searched for with such a high sensitivity. A detection could betray the existence of primordial black holes. Contact Stephan LeBohec for more details.
