Evolution of SPI detector count rates over the mission. The SPI anticoincidence system mainly records charged-particle interactions, thus creating a veto signal for the Ge detector electronics; this avoids full processing of Ge detector signals for events that are coincident with a cosmic-ray hit. Shown are measured rates of the anticoincidence system (blue, left axis), and two different event rates in the Ge detectors (green for total, red for non-vetoed and thus either delayed background or potentially celestial triggers; right-side axes). Sporadic high rates are caused by solar flares.

Current usage metrics show cumulative count of Article Views (full-text article views including HTML views, PDF and ePub downloads, according to the available data) and Abstracts Views on Vision4Press platform.

Data correspond to usage on the plateform after 2015. The current usage metrics is available 48-96 hours after online publication and is updated daily on week days.

Initial download of the metrics may take a while.
