Four sample groups were prepared by adding different concentrations of naphthalene (NP) or of 2,6-diisopropylnaphthalene (DIN) as a secondary solvent (<inline-formula><tex-math notation="LaTeX">${{\rm S}_2}$</tex-math></inline-formula>) in carborane-loaded toluene (TL)- and pseudocumene (PC)-based scintillators. The pulse-height spectra of the samples in response to <inline-formula><tex-math notation="LaTeX">$^{137}{\rm Cs}\ \gamma $</tex-math></inline-formula>-rays and to thermal neutrons were… CONTINUE READING
