Title: Simulated Performance of a Second-Generation Compact Compton Imaging Detector

Abstract

Simulations are performed using GEANT4 of a second-generation compact Compton imaging detector called CCI2 which uses silicon and germanium detector crystals. Realistic simulated detector geometry and realistic detector parameters are used. Results are obtained for the CCI2 detector for the intrinsic photopeak efficiency, imaging efficiency, and angular resolution, and simulated images are created for point sources with various energies and source angles.
