A position-sensitive detector for gamma rays in the energy range of 50-500 MeV was designed, built and tested. For 100 MeV gammas, it has energy resolution of 26.3% (fwhm), position resolution of 3.1 mm (fwhm) and calculated detection efficiency of 30%. The detector's performance is in good agreement with Monte Carlo calculations of electromagnetic shower development.
