Energy Resolution and Non-proportionality of Scintillators

  title={Energy Resolution and Non-proportionality of Scintillators},
  author={Paul Lecoq and Alexander Gektin and Mikhail Korzhik},
This chapter concentrates on the energy resolution of inorganic scintillators. It is known since a long time that scintillators suffer non-proportionality of the light yield and deposited energy. Although this phenomenon is not completely understood, the possible mechanisms at the origin of the non-proportionality are discussed in detail in this chapter. A particular attention is given to the structure of the energy deposition from ionizing particles and to phenomena of clustering of… CONTINUE READING
