Abstract
A Compton gamma imager is useful for detecting and localizing the source of gamma-emitting radioactive sources. A project to develop the imager for security, emergency response and military use was funded by Department of National Defence (DND), and with collaboration with National Research Council (NRC) and Natural Resources Canada (NRCan). A Compton imager mainly consists of two layers of gamma-ray detectors, each layer segmented in x-y plane for position localization.
