Testing an Ortec Lifetime System
We report preliminary performance tests of an ORTEC PLS lifetime system based on plastic scintillators and analog electronic system. A variety of samples was measured, from metals (Cu, stainless steel), across semiconductors (Cz-grown silicon, ZnSe) to nanostructured ceramics (ZrO2). All results obtained are compatible with literature reports and indicate the lifetime resolution of the whole system as 180 ps.
