Abstract: The two-photomultiplier method of studying scintillator decay has been adapted to measure over the time range from 0.1 ps to 3 ms. Results are given for the most commonly used inorganic scintillators with both a and y excitation. It is found that the decay is, in most cases, better described by a power law than by a series of exponentials. The results for caesium iodide are analysed to derive the optimum filter for use in pulse shape discrimination. Attention is drawn to the influence of the decay behaviour o…
