The combination of SiPMs with fast and bright scintillators, such as LaBr3:Ce, seems very promising for application in time-of-flight (TOF) PET. We therefore conducted a series of experiments with the goal of obtaining the best possible timing resolution with SiPM-based scintillation detectors in order to establish a bench mark for future experiments with different detector designs. The detectors employed in our measurements consisted of two SiPMs (Hamamatsu MPPC-S10362-33-050C), which were… CONTINUE READING
