Abstract [en]

The Tagged Neutron Inspection System, which is the principle of the EURITRACK project, requires efficient and inexpensive gamma-ray detectors. For this purpose, properties of 3 x 3 and 5 x 5 cylindrical BGO and NaI(TI) scintillators and of a 5 x 5 x 10 rectangular NaI(TI) scintillator were determined. 14 Light yield, energy and time resolution of the investigated crystals at the energy of few MeVs of gamma-rays are emphasized. Additionally, the crystals efficiencies calculated with Monte Carlo simulations are compared to peak-to-total ratios obtained experimentally for various combinations of PMTs and the scintillators.
