Polarimetry Histograms

This function analyses photons which are Compton scattered inside the PICsIT layer and deposit their energies inside two neighbouring pixels. It is assumed that the photons deposit the higher part of the energy inside the first pixel. For every pixel the energy is counted in 64 channels while the polarisation angle is kept in 8 different directions represented by the neighbouring pixel positions. The time information of the events is lost.
