A new scintillation counter with very fast resolving time (1961); Nouveau compteur a scintillation a tres faible temps de resolution (1961)

Abstract

The rare gases used as scintillators are characterized by their short time of luminescence and by the linearity of their response as a function of the total energy imparted to the gas by the incident particle. It is possible with these scintillators, when associated with a fast response photomultiplier, to solve certain problems of nuclear physics demanding a linear detector with a very fast resolving time (a few nanoseconds). Two examples of the construction of this apparatus are described. The results obtained and future possibilities are briefly outlined. (author) [French] Les gaz rares utilises comme scintillateurs sont caracterises par leur faible duree de luminescence et par la linearite de leur reponse en fonction de l'energie totale cedee au gaz par la particule incidente. Ces scintillateurs, associes a un photomultiplicateur a une reponse rapide, permettent de resoudre certains problemes de physique nucleaire dans lesquels un detecteur lineaire a tres faible temps de resolution (quelques nanosecondes) se revele indispensable. Deux exemples de realisation sont decrits. Les resultats obtenus et les possibilites futures sont brievement exposes. (auteur)
