Abstract: The RT 2 Experiment onboard the CORONAS PHOTON satellite is designed to study the spec tral, temporal, and spatial details of solar hard X ray flares in the 15–150 keV range. Above this energy (and upto 1000 keV), it also acts as an omni directional gamma ray detector with a capability to study gamma ray bursts (GRB), bright solar flares, and X ray pulsars. With an ensemble of hard X ray detectors with different fields of view and coding devices, it also has the capability to investigate the spectrum of Cosmic Diffuse X ray Background. The performance of the detectors from 2009 February to November is described in this paper. Results obtained on a few GRBs and solar flares are also briefly discussed.
