Abstract

In this paper new techniques for the realization of a high energy gamma-ray telescope are presented, based on the adoption of silicon strip detectors and lead scintillating fibers. The simulated performances of this instrument show that the silicon strip technology adopted by GILDA (Gamma-ray Imaging Large Detector for Astrophysics) could improve the performance of EGRET, which is so far the most successful experiment of a high energy gamma-ray telescope, though having less volume and weight.
