Paper Abstract

Energy resolution and difference of maximum energy of Compton electrons from half-height of Compton edge was measured experimentally for cyclohexane and deuterated- cycloheane (C6D12) scintillators for monoenergetic gamma-rays using gamma-gamma coincidence technique. For 0.5- 1.2 MeV gamma rays, the energy resolution of C6D12 and C6H12 scintillators vary from 26.6 to 14.0 percent and 31.1 to 15.7 percent respectively. The corresponding energy difference between the maximum Compton electron energy and the half height of the Compton edge for C6D12 and C6H12 scintillators vary form 15.3 to 6.3 percent and 14.0 to 7.33 percent respectively. Energy resolution of C6D12 and C6H12 scintillators is 14-31 percent and 18-31 percent poorer than that of the identical C6D6 and C6H6 scintillators.
