Title: Technical Scope of Work: Proton Induced Radiation Damage in Crystal Scintillators

This is a technical scope of work (TSW) between the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab) and the experimenters of California Institute of Technology who have committed to participate in beam tests to be carried out during the 2014 Fermilab Test Beam Facility program. The goal of this investigation is to understand the proton-induced radiation damage in candidate fast crystal scintillators for future HEP experiments. Degradations of the optical and scintillation properties, including emission and transmittance spectra, light output, decay time and light response uniformity, will be measured before and after each step of proton irradiation at Fermilab with a defined fluence. The irradiation will start with a fluence of 1010/cm2 and going up in four steps to 1013/cm2.
