A study of the characteristics of inorganic scintillators for radiation monitors

Physical Instruments for Ecology, Medicine, and Biology


Inorganic scintillators for use in radiation monitoring devices were investigated. The detection threshold, which is the key characteristic of a γ-ray monitor, was evaluated. The possibility of calculating the effective thickness of a scintillator based on the background characteristic of the detector was shown.
