Analytical Method to Calibrate Cylindrical LaBr3(Ce) Scintillation Detector

Abstract:

Article Preview

A new analytical method of efficiency calibration is proposed for cylindrical lanthanum bromide (LaBr3:Ce) scintillation detectors. The cerium-doped lanthanum halide crystals have gained special interest due to their high density and atomic number, which results in excellent scintillation properties and higher detection efficiencies in comparison to NaI(Tl). The comparisons with the experimental and Monte Carlo method data reported in the literature indicate that the present method is useful in the efficiency calibration of the cylindrical lanthanum bromide scintillation detectors.
