POLAR: a compact detector for GRB polarization measurements

Abstract : Through polarization measurements of X-rays can provide essential information for identifying processes responsible of their emission by astrophysical objects, almost no experimental data exist yet. We propose here a novel wide field compact detector for hard X-ray polarization measurements based on Compton scattering process and made of low-Z fast scintillators.
