Deep Ensemble Analysis for Imaging X-ray Polarimetry

8 Jul 2020A. L. PeirsonR. W. RomaniH. L. MarshallJ. F. SteinerL. Baldini

We present a method for enhancing the sensitivity of X-ray telescopic observations with imaging polarimeters, with a focus on the gas pixel detectors (GPDs) to be flown on the Imaging X-ray Polarimetry Explorer (IXPE). Our analysis measures photoelectron directions, X-ray absorption points and X-ray energies for 2-8keV event tracks, with estimates for both the statistical and systematic (reconstruction) uncertainties...
