Scintillation detectors in experiments on high energy physics

Abstract

Scintillation counters have been serving as one of the main particle detector for more than hundred years. By now a number of scintillation detectors types and detector systems were developed and used widely in high energy physics experiments to detect charged and neutral particles in a large energy range from 1 keV to hundreds of GeV. Main classes of the scintillation materials are inorganic and organic scintillators. However, liquid and gaseous scintillators are exploited as well in some experiments. This review includes the present status of the scintillation technique use in high energy physics experiments, main characteristics of the existing scintillators, examples of experiments and a consideration of the further development of this type of detectors.
