Paper Abstract

As new scintillation materials are developed, great care is taken so that the scintillation properties of the material are optimized. Of equal importance, however, is ensuring that the new detector material is capable of reliable performance over an extended time period under a variety of environmental conditions. Careful consideration of the scintillation properties, mechanical properties, and the intended use of the final detector assembly is essential to the successful design and fabrication of reliable packaging. This paper discusses the important scintillation characteristics and properties that influence detector design. Also presented are the important design features that should be implemented when fabricating reliable inorganic scintillation detectors.
