Large-Area Scintillation Counters

1. Proportional Scintillation Counters
  • B. B. Govorkov
  • V. S. Chukin

Abstract

The properties of large-area proportional scintillation counters (LASC) are reviewed. Questions of light collection in scintillators, different types of light guides, and substances for optical contacts are discussed in detail. A nonuniformity of ±5% and an energy resolution of ±13% can be obtained by using twisted strip light guides.
