A TIGRE on the Moon Timing Italian Gamma Ray Experiment:  A TIGRE on the Moon Timing Italian Gamma Ray Experiment E. Costa, Y. Evangelista, M. Feroci, M. Rapisarda(*), P. Soffitta INAF – IASF Rome (*) ENEA Frascati P. Battaglia, L. Pagan ALCATEL ALENIA SPACE - ITALIA, Vimodrone The Lunar Scenario:  The Lunar Scenario The Moon offers a wide and stable surface Large Area & Long Duration Experiments The Moon rotates Wide Field and Transit Experiments Transportation to the Moon will limit size and weight Modular approach for multiple deliveries The Science Scenario:  Mid- and Near-future observational advancements in X-ray Astronomy are expected in the field of: High resolution spectroscopy (e.g., Con-X, XEUS) Hard X-rays (e.g., Simbol-X, NEXT) Not much is expected for Timing, where significant improvements require passing from the current (RXTE PCA) 0.5 m2 to collecting areas in the range of 50-100 m2. The Science Scenario Why a 100 m2-class Experiment?:  To observe individual cycles of QPO emission and directly study the accretion of matter onto the blak hole from the innermorst stable orbit of the accretion disk, where the strong field gravity operates and the motion of matter is directly related to fundamental parameters of the system. (see also ASI-INAF 2004 study on perspectives for High Energy Astrophysics) Quasi-Periodic Oscillations in Galactic X-ray Binaries Why a 100 m2-class Experiment? GRBs: in both the Hypernova and Merging stars models, in the very early phases (i.e., first milliseconds) the orbiting matter is expected to cause fast pulsations of the emission, possibly the only chance to directly observe the properties of the GRB inner engine and of the parent objects. Magnetars: transient ~30-100 Hz QPOs have been detected for the brightest flares, most likely originated by the seismic motions of the compact star. 2. High Resolution Timing of Bursts and Flares from Gamma Ray Bursters and Magnetars 3. Survey of X-ray Pulsars The class of radio-quiet isolated neutron stars (e.g., Geminga-like) is far less populated than radio-loud pulsars (~10 vs ~1500). This difference is not yet understood, whether it is due to real quenching of the radio emission or it is due to a transient nature. An unprecedently deep X-ray pulsar survey will likely compensate observational selection effects bring to the discovery of several Geminga-like pulsars and assess this issue, constraining pulsar models 4. and then Flares from Black-hole candidates, type-I bursters, INSs, bursting pulsar, rapid burster, supergiant fast X-ray transients, RRATs, ….

Labanti et al., IASF-Bo) (Gatti & Rehak 1984) The Controlled Drift Detector:  The Controlled Drift Detector “Evolution” of SDD: multi-linear SDD detector with longitudinal coordinate derived by charge drift time (T0 from backside electrode). Noise performance comparable to SDD, position resolution ~100 m, read-out electronics for multi-linear SDD only (N vs N2), room temperature operation. Effective low energy threshold and single detector area to be assessed. (A. Castoldi et al., 2003) Developed at INFN-Milano / Politecnico di Milano (A. Castoldi, E. Gatti, C. Guazzoni, L.

Batteries have been dimensioned to give the needed power continuously for a period of 14 days (336 hours). The FE heaters power consumption has been considered in the night only operational configuration. Slide21:  … fly me to the moon … ♬ ♬ ♬
