The Polarized Gamma Observatory (PoGO) -- UH page

PoGO Overview

PoGO-lite pathfinder experiment consisting of a 61 phoswich prototype flight to explore using this technique for ~100keV polarized gamma observation of interesting astrophysical sources with predictions for the polarization of these objects during various episodic phases.  As indicated above, this flight is to take place from Esrange (Sweden) in June 2011.

Next Teleconf:   May 16

Possible observation targets:


A successful flight -- in particular demonstration that the fluence of neutrons at target float altitude do not degrade the science mission -- is an essential step toward a full-sized, LDB mission using this technology.
