Scintillation Efficiency Improvement by Mixed Crystal Use

  title={Scintillation Efficiency Improvement by Mixed Crystal Use},
  author={Alexander V. Gektin and Andrei N. Belsky and Andrey N. Vasil'ev},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Nuclear Science},
Analysis of the last years theoretical studies and track simulations to conclusion that primary stages (electron scattering and e-h thermalization) play the key role in the following scintillator efficiency. The long thermalization length comparing to Onsager radius is the main reason for geminate pair concentration decrease and later luminescence losses. The easiest way for thermalization length decrease is the scintillation crystal doping or even transfer to the mixed crystals (solid solution… CONTINUE READING
