Using highly monochromatic X-ray synchrotron radiation ranging from 9 keV to 100 keV, accurate Lu<sub>2</sub>Si<sub>2</sub>O<sub>7</sub>:Ce<sup>3+</sup>,Ca (LSO), Lu<sub>3</sub>Al<sub>5</sub>O:Pr<sup>3+</sup> (LuAG), Lu<sub>2</sub>Si<sub>2</sub>O<sub>5</sub>:Ce<sup>3+</sup> (LPS) and Gd<sub>2</sub>SiO<sub>5</sub>:Ce<sup>3+</sup> (GSO) nonproportional response curves were determined. By utilizing information from escape peaks in pulse height spectra the response curve can be extended down to…

Nonproportional Response of Scintillators to Alpha Particle Excitation
TLDR
It is concluded that the gamma nonproportionality, gamma intrinsic energy resolution, and <inline-formula> <tex-math notation="LaTeX">$\alpha$ </tex-Math></inline- formula> particle response are closely related to each other, and they are due to quenching in the high density part of ionization tracks.
