Paper Abstract

The development of thin plastic scintillating fibers has opened the way to new designs for detectors in gamma ray spectroscopy and imaging. Monte Carlo simulation of these scintillating fiber detectors can provide important data for their use in designs of gamma ray telescopes and medical imagers. Results will be presented for different detector designs using 0.25 mm to 1 mm wide scintillation fibers for gamma ray energies between 0.5 and 50 Mev. These simulations show the significant improvements which can be achieved by applying this type of detectors in gamma ray astronomy and medical imaging.
