Standard B-style assemblies
SCIONIX scintillation detectors are characterized by a type number in which most of the properties of the instrument can be found. However, there remain features that are not “captured” in the type number (e.g. special geometries or electronic features) since there is an large number of ways a scintillation detector can be constructed. In this case the suffix -Xxx is added to the type number which refers to “special”. Note that for some of the nine features below, more than one option may apply.
The following example, type number V 50 BD 5 / 2 M – E1 – CS – X indicates a 50 mm square CsI(Tl) crystal, 5 mm high, integrally coupled to a 51 mm diameter (2″) photomultiplier tube. The detector is provided with a beryllium entrance window, solid Mu-metal detector housing and built-in voltage divider. It is a customer special.
