Abstract

The main goal of this work is to study the possibility of detecting alpha particles with a micropixel avalanche photodiode (MAPD) in combination with Lutetium Fine Silicate (LFS) scintillators (500 μm thick). The results show that alpha detectors based on the MAPD are expected to be useful in many applications: public security (associated particle imaging for explosives and drugs detection), radioactive contamination monitoring in various environments, and detection of charged particles from nuclear reactions.
