Modeling and Simulation of Scintillation Pulses for Crystal Identification Applications

  title={Modeling and Simulation of Scintillation Pulses for Crystal Identification Applications},
  author={Hassan I. Saleh and A. A. Arafa},
The crystal identification and particle identification require applying pulse shape discrimination (PSD) or Crystal Identification (CI) me thods to differentiate between two or more types of scintillation pulses according to their decay times. The characterizations of scintillation pulses significantly affect the performance and the complexity of the CI algorithm. This paper implements a mathematical model of different types of pulses and their typical noise. Furthermore, a generic LabVIEWbased… 


A Digital Method for the Discrimination of Neutrons and $\gamma$ Rays With Organic Scintillation Detectors Using Frequency Gradient Analysis
A digital method for the discrimination of neutron and γ-ray events from an organic scintillator has been investigated by using frequency gradient analysis (FGA) based on the Fourier transform. Since
A Data Processing System for Real-Time Pulse Processing and Timing Enhancement for Nuclear Particle Detection Systems
A timing enhancement technique using correlations is presented that allows sub-sample timing accuracy of the time-of-arrival of pulses and shows the system's potential.
A Real-Time Scintillation Crystal Identification Method and Its FPGA Implementation
The main idea of this paper is the complexity reduction of the ZM-based CI method and using a Support Vector Machine (SVM) classifier to comply with the rate of real-time PET scanners.
A novel digital pulse-shape analysis for high-resolution position-sensitive Gamma-ray spectroscopy
A novel digital pulse-shape analysis (DPSA) was performed for high-resolution position-sensitive gamma-ray spectroscopy with coaxial-type high-purity germanium (HpGe) detectors. The DPSA consisted of
