Calibration and analysis of the GCT camera for the Cherenkov Telescope Array

Abstract:

The interaction of very-high-energy astrophysical gamma rays with the Earth’s atmosphere produces extensive electromagnetic particle cascades. These showers of particles travel faster than the speed of light in air, and consequently emit photons of blue wavelength, known as Cherenkov radiation. The Imaging Atmospheric Cherenkov Telescope (IACT) technique enables the probing of the universe at TeV energies through the detection of these Cherenkov showers. The Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA)...
