PSD stands for the Pulse Shape Discrimination sub-assembly of the SPI telescope aboard of INTEGRAL. The PSD provides an onboard classification of events in the energy range 200 keV - 2 MeV. This classification allows for an effective rejection of background events that arise from localised beta-decays within the SPI Germanium detectors.

This page gathers informations related to the SPI PSD sub-assembly.
