Title: THE SENSITIVITIES OF SCINTILLATORS, IMAGE INTENSIFIERS AND TELEVISION SYSTEMS IN OBSERVING BEAMS OF NUCLEAR PARTICLES

Abstract

Details of the scintillators, image intensifiers and television tubes that could be used in a system for viewing the profile of a beam of nuclear particles are presented, and the performance of several systems is given. The least sensitive system is a vidicon camera viewing a 2 cm thick plastic scintillator, which can be used in a flux of approximates 2 x 10/sup 9/ minimum ionizing particles cm/sup -2/ sec/sup -1/. High gain intensifiers plus an orthicon camera are sensitive to individual particles. Calculations show that an electroluminescent image intensifier panel should be useful for observing fluxes of approximates 10/sup 7/ minimum ionizing particles cm/sup -2/ sec/sup -1/. (auth)
