Organic scintillators - Chap. 35.3


Organic scintillators produce light when transversed by a charged particle. They can be broadly categorized into four types: single crystal, liquid, plastic, and a recently emerged glass. Organic scintillators have found use in a wide variety of detectors [38]. Plastics are mostly used in collider detectors, and liquids in neutrino experiments. This paper describes scintillation mechanism, plastic scintillator practicalities, and liquid scincillator practicalities.
