    The Magic Telescope

       Fadi 10, 2008 7:49 pm

    Gamma-ray astronomy at low energies with high sensitivity

    The MAGIC Telescope Collaboration has built in 2001 - 2003 a large atmospheric imaging Cherenkov telescope, with a mirror surface of 236 m2 and photomultiplier tubes of optimal efficiency. With the accent on best light collection, cosmic gamma-rays at an energy threshold lower than any existing or planned terrestrial gamma-ray telescope become accessible. Their analysis is uncharted territory: coping with the hadronic background below 100 GeV presents a totally new challenge. Analysis methods require adapting to this low-energy domain; so far achieved has been a threshold of 70 GeV.

    MAGIC status

    Located on a mountain top on the Canary island of La Palma, the construction of this world-wide largest telescope has been completed in 2003. Fully operational since 2004, it is run by an international collaboration of 17 institutes (see MAGIC Collaboration). Under construction is a second MAGIC telescope, on the same site, with further improvements towards low energy: MAGIC-II. In early 2008, the mechanical structure is completed and in place, mirrors are being mounted, the camera is being prepared. The inauguration is foreseen for September 2008
