Abstract

The mean life of scintillations in caesium iodide is dependent on the nature of the ionizing particle, the shortest life corresponding to the highest ionization density. This property is utilized for distinguishing different particles producing scintillations of similar amplitude. The apparatus described is a shape discriminator. It measures the time required by the scintillation to fall from its maximum to an adjustable fraction thereof. A time-amplitude converter provides a pulse the height of which is proportional to the time so measured. A comparison is then made between the shapes of the scintillations produced by alpha particles, protons and electrons, and the results obtained are shown. Application of this method to the measurement of recoil protons set in motion in a thin hydrogenated diffuser by a neutron flux is also described. Suppression of the pulses produced by gamma rays makes it possible to deduce from the spectra obtained the variation of the differential elastic scattering cross-section in terms of the angle, for d-t reaction neutrons.

(author) [French] La vie moyenne des scintillations dans l'iodure de cesium varie suivant la nature de la particule ionisante. A la plus grande densite d'ionisation correspond la vie la plus courte. Cette propriete est employee pour distinguer differentes particules produisant des scintillations d'amplitude analogue. L'appareil decrit est un discriminateur de forme. Il mesure le temps mis par la scintillation pour passer de son maximum a une fraction reglable de cette amplitude. Un convertisseur temps-amplitude fournit une impulsion dont la hauteur est proportionnelle au temps ainsi mesure. Les auteurs comparent les formes des scintillations produites par les particules a, les protons, les electrons; ils presentent les resultats obtenus. Les auteurs decrivent l'application de cette methode a la mesure des protons de recul qu'un flux de neutrons met en mouvement dans un diffuseur hydrogene mince. La suppression des impulsions dues aux rayons {gamma} permet de deduire des spectres obtenus la variation de la section efficace differentielle de diffusion elastique en fonction de l'angle pour les neutrons de la reaction d-t. [Spanish] La vida media de los centelleos en el yoduro de cesio varia segun la naturaleza de la particula ionizante. La vida mas corta corresponde a la densidad de ionizacion mas elevada. Los autores aprovechan esta propiedad para distinguir entre si particulas que producen centelleos de amplitud analoga. El aparato descrito es un discriminador de forma de impulsos. Mide el tiempo que tarda el centelleo en pasar de su maximo a una fraccion regulable de dicha amplitud. Un convertidor de tiempo-amplitud produce un impulso cuya amplitud es proporcional al tiempo medido de este modo. La memoria compara las configuraciones de los centelleos producidos por las particulas alfa, los protones y los electrones, y presenta los resultados obtenidos. Tambien describe la aplicacion de este metodo a la medicion de los protones de retroceso que pone en movimiento un flujo de neutrones en un difusor hidrogenado de poco espesor. La supresion de los impulsos debidos a los rayos gamma permite calcular, a partir de los espectros obtenidos, la variacion de la seccion eficaz diferencial de dispersion elastica en funcion del angulo para los neutrones de la reaccion d-t.
