Title: Thermal Variance Investigation and Scintillation Mechanisms of Cs 2LiLaBr 6-xCl x:Ce (CLLBC) and Cs 2LiYBr 6:Ce (CLYB)

Abstract

We perform an investigation into the scintillation processes and performance of elpasolites Cs 2LiLaBr 6-xCl x:Ce (CLLBC) and Cs 2LiYBr 6:Ce (CLYB) using a thermal cycle over a range of -20 to +50º C. At 10º increments, we acquire data with both a waveform digitizer and charge-integrating electronics. We identify decay components and evaluate decay times, thermal neutron gamma-equivalent energy (GEE), and pulse shape discrimination (PSD) performance. Results are compared to common Cs 2LiYCl 6:Ce (CLYC).
