Abstract [en]

Two samples of 10 mm diameter and 10 mm height CdWO4 (CdWO) and ZnWO4 (ZnWO) scintillators were studied at room (RT) and liquid nitrogen (LN2) temperature. At room temperature the crystals were coupled to a Photonis XP3212 photomultiplier. During experiments in liquid nitrogen a Large Area Avalanche Photodiode (LAAPD) was used as a photodetector. Measurements of light output, non-proportionality of the light yield and intrinsic resolution as a function of gamma-ray energies were performed at both temperatures. The non-proportionality for the two crystals, likely CaWO4, reveals temperature dependence, to reach the same values at LN2 temperature. Intrinsic energy resolution for both crystals was also changed at LN2 comparing to the data collected at RT. The intrinsic energy resolution was improved below 100 keV and deteriorated for higher energies.
