Abstract

The characteristics of a Silicon Photo Multiplier (SiPM)-based scintillation detector system were studied. The influence of the bias voltage and the number of SiPMs on the energy resolution was identified. The single SiPM energy spectra in the multi-SiPM system showed their dependency on the position of the 60Co radiation source. The application of geometric mean on the multi-SiPM system was also considered to bypass single channel calibrations. Preliminary results on the performances of developing scintillation detectors with a CsI(Tl) crystal or a plastic scintillator are demonstrated. The capability of charged particle measurement for CsI(Tl) crystal and sub-nanosecond timing resolution of plastic scintillator were identified.
