Paper Abstract

The development prospects of a scintillator-photodiode type detector with an improved energy resolution attaining few per cent, about 1.5 to 2.5%, are considered. The main resolution components have been analyzed theoretically, their theoretical and physical limits have been established. Empirical data on the properties of novel scintillators have been considered confirming the possibility of the energy resolution improvement. Ways have been proposed to optimize the detector statistical fluctuations and the scintillator intrinsic resolution. A specific importance of the intrinsic resolution is shown as a limiting threshold factor at the ionizing radiation energy values from 662 keV to 10 MeV and over.
