Gamma-Ray Investigations of Gamma-ray Bursts with Polarimetry and Spectroscopy

The Gamma-Ray Burst Investigation with Polarimetry and Spectroscopy experiment is a proposal for ESA's Cosmic Vision program. It features a Compton and Pair Tracking instrument with a large field of view for the 200 keV to 50 MeV energy range, and an X-ray monitor with a 3-degree field of view. The anticipated mission will be a continuous scan of the sky, with X-ray post-observations of gamma-ray burst of high redshifts, as identified instantaneously with the gamma-ray instrument. The gamma-ray instrument will be capable of polarimetry in the 100-1000 keV range. Besides GRBs at redshifts above 10-15, the mission also addresses SNIa and other nuclear gamma-ray line sources, and relativistic particle acceleration sources near compact stars, interstellar shocks, and in galaxies or galaxy clusters.
It has been proposed in June 2007 to ESA by a multi-national collaboration under leadership of MPE (PI Jochen Greiner).
