Abstract

We presented in 2014 the very first data from a polarised gamma-ray beam between 1.7 and 74MeV. We now show the results of their analysis, and in particular the polarimetry measurements. With these results, we are establishing a new, high-performance way to do gamma-ray astronomy and, for the first time, polarimetry, in the e+e- pair regime.
