    We present the one-dimensional (1D) position and energy resolution results obtained by a γ-ray detector based on a single CsI(Tl) scintillator coupled to a linear array of silicon drift detectors (SDDs). The present prototype has been realized in order to investigate the basic performances of...

    The AGILE Mini-Calorimeter (MCAL, with total on-axis radiation length 1.5 X[SUBo]) comprises 2 orthogonal planes each consisting of 16 CsI(T1) bars. Its primary purpose is the energy determination of gamma-rays detected by the Gamma-Ray Imaging Detector (GRID) Tracker (energy range 30 MeV - 50...
