Impulsive X-ray Emission by the Sun
Harries, J. R.
Proceedings of the Astronomical Society of Australia, Volume 1, Issue 2, pp. 51-52
Publication Date:
Bibliographic Code:


Solar X-ray bursts have been observed by a xenon-methane filled proportional counter on the satellite IMP-F. The counter is one inch deep and has a 14 mg/cm2 beryllium window. A slat collimator restricts the field of view to a full width of 5° in the direction of the satellite spin while allowing the counter to see ±60° in the plane containing the spin axis. The effective window area of the counter is 2.2 cm2, after allowing for the collimator.
