Abstract [en]

PoGOLite is a ballon-borne soft gamma-ray (X-ray) polarimeter operating in the 25-80 keV energy band. The polarisation of incoming photons is determined using compton scattering and photo absorption events reconstructed in an array of plastic scintillator detector calls surrounded by a BGO side anti-coincidence shield and a polyethylene neutron shield. Observations take place from a stratospheric ballon operating at an altitude of similar to 40 km. A custom attitude control system keeps the polarimeter field-of-view aligned to targets of intrest. The maiden 'pathfinder' flight of PoGOLite took place from the Esrange Space Centre in July 2011.
