Abstract

The efficiency for analyzing circular polarization of gamma rays with a forward scattering Compton polarimeter has been calculated using Monte Carlo techniques and a density matrix formalism. Effects of multiple scattering and linear polarization have been included. Emphasis has been placed on integral detection methods, which lack energy resolution. It is shown that multiple scattering has a considerable influence on the intensity and polarization efficiency functions.
