The Performance of Plastic Scintillation Detectors

This project is concerned with the performance of plastic scintillation detectors in the detection of protons and indication of their energy. Of specific interest are proton-proton scattering events in which both protons are detected in coincidence and their energies analyzed. It is required that the scintillators are large to subtend a large solid angle at a given distance and that they indicate the energy of incident protons accurately. The detector in question consisted of NE. 102 scintillation plastic mounted on an RCA 8055 photomultiplier tube.
