Influence of temperature treatment on radiation stability of plastic scintillator and wavelength shifter

Abstract

The influence of temperature treatment before or after irradiation on the radiation damage of plastic scintillators and wavelength shifters has been measured. The PMMA (polymethyl methacrylate)-based wavelength shifters show strong recovery for heating in argon after irradiation, whereas the polystyrene-based scintillator SCSN-38 in air suffers from heating… (More)
