Scintillators for high-energy physics

Scintillators are applied in high-energy physics to measure the energy of particles that are produced in particle physics experiments. Their use is motivated by the very good detection efficiency of these materials for hard radiation which allows the construction of relatively compact and finely pixelised systems with a high spatial resolution.

A summary table of inorganic scintillators for high-energy-physics is provided below.
