VERITAS: the Very Energetic Radiation Imaging Telescope Array System
Optional Fields
The Very Energetic Radiation Imaging Telescope Array System (VERITAS) represents an important step forward in the study of extreme astrophysical processes in the universe. It combines the power of the atmospheric Cherenkov imaging technique using a large optical reflector with the power of stereoscopic observatories using at-rays of separated telescopes looking at the same shower. The seven identical telescopes in VERITAS. each of aperture 10 m, will be deployed in a filled hexagonal pattern of side 80 m, each telescope will have a camera consisting of 499 pixels with a field of view of 3.5degrees. VERITAS will substantially increase the catalog of very high energy (E > 100 GeV) gamma-ray sources and greatly improve measurements of established sources. (C) 2002 Elsevier Science B.V.
