Dr Jean-Francois Glicenstein (CEA)


The Cerenkov Telescope Array (CTA) is a project of building a High Energy (10 GeV to 100 TeV) gamma ray observatory. The CTA consortium is organized in workpackages dedicated to the electronics, the telescope structure, the focal plane instruments and other topics. In this talk, I will first give a brief overview of High Energy gamma ray astronomy. Next, I will describe the status of the work in the various workpackages. Then I will conclude by giving a tentative timeline for the CTA project.
Please indicate "poster" or "plenary" session. Final decision will be made by session coordinators. plenary
