The IBIS Telescope is the high angular resolution Gamma-Ray imager on-Board the INTEGRAL Satellite. IBIS features a coded aperture mask and a novel large area (∼3,000 cm2) multilayer detector which utilises both Cadmium Telluride (16,384 detectors) and Caesium Iodide elements (4,096 detectors) to provide the fine angular resolution ∼12 arcmin, wide spectral response (20 keV to 10 MeV), high resolution timing (61 μs) and spectroscopy (6% at 100 keV) required to satisfy the mission’s imaging objectives. This paper will focus on the IBIS hardware characteristics while the Scientific Performance of the telescope have been recently addressed elsewhere [1]. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.
