The pulse shape discrimination (PSD) is often made for liquid organic scintillators for the purpose of separating neutrons from gamma-rays. Particles emitted from spallation reactions induced by protons of GeV range were measured with an NE213 liquid scintillator, 12.7 cm in diameter and 12.7 cm thick. The pulse shape characteristics were studied by the use of charged-particles incident on the detector. A two-gate integration method. The charged particles (protons and pions) having velocities… Expand
