Abstract

The Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS-02) is going to be launched next February 2011 from the Kennedy Space Center. It will be located by the Space Shuttle on the International Space Station and will have its same lifetime: 10 years or even more. The experiment will observe high energy gamma-ray photons from several Astrophysical sources. We consider here the AMS-02 single-photon-mode, i.e. gamma ray photons revealed by the ECAL through electromagnetic shower production. By means of Monte Carlo simulations and Test Beam data, we present a preliminary approach to the gamma-ray photon selection procedure and discuss the potentiality of the detector.
