CLYC Versus Stilbene: Optimization and Comparison of Two Neutron-gamma Discriminating Scintillators

by , | Nov 21, 2010 | Papers

CLYC is a novel scintillator with excellent pulse shape discrimination attributes. When introducing a new scintillator it is helpful to derive a quantitative measure of its performance. A detailed analysis is performed with CLYC and another common material Stilbene – two materials capable of neutron/photon discrimination. Using one particular choice of a figure of merit we find that CLYC outperforms Stilbene by a factor of 50.
