Title: RISE Germany Internship: Unfolding FACT Data
Language (ISO): en
Abstract: In this report the results from a 10 week internship are presented. The goal of the internship was to apply different unfolding approaches to conduct measurements of energy spectra from data aquired by FACT, the First G-APD Cherenkov Telescope. FACT is the first operational telescope of its kind, employing a camera equipped with silicon photo multipliers (G-APD aka SiPM) to primarily detect gamma rays. Improving the unfolding method can help with better interpretation of the data and more accurate physics results without the need for new equipment or more observations. The approaches tested during this internship range from simplistic matrix inversion to an improvement over of the previous standard (TRUEE).
