Paper Abstract

New type of polystyrene-based scintillators UPS98GC were tested regarding long term stability, radiation hardness and light yield uniformity for different doses and dose-rate levels of gamma radiation. They were compared to SCSN-81 produced by Kuraray Co. which has often used in high-energy physics experiments. The dependence of scintillator properties on radiation dose rates as well on total dose values is studied. It is shown that for relatively small dose rate, closed to those expected during scintillator lifetime, our UPS98GC does not yield to SCSN-81.
