Application of large area avalanche photodiodes to study scintillators at liquid nitrogen temperatures
2003 (English)In: Nuclear Instruments and Methods in Physics Research Section A: Accelerators, Spectrometers, Detectors and Associated Equipment, ISSN 0168-9002, Vol. 504, no 03-jan, 307-312 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Properties of Large Area Avalanche Photodiodes (LAAPDs) at liquid nitrogen (LN2) temperatures in application to study pure NaI, CsI and BGO scintillators are presented. All the tested crystals exhibited excellent performance at LN2 temperatures reflected by a high light output and very good energy resolution. The study showed that the LAAPD operating at LN2 temperatures is an excellent light readout device for testing different scintillators at low temperatures.
