Description

Gamma-ray photons detected by DArk Matter Particle Explorer (DAMPE) can be used to calibrate the instrument response function. The unbiased and precise knowledge of spatial resolution of the detector is crucial for gamma-ray science of DAMPE. We have obtained point-spread function (PSF) from Monte Carlo (MC) simulation of the DAMPE detector. This work present the calibration of the PSF with bright pulsars and AGNs. We find both the derived 68% and 95% containment radii are compatible with the MC results.
