Nonproportionality and scintillation studies of Eu: SrI 2 from 295 to 5 K

The low temperature scintillation properties of 5 atomic Eu:SrI 2 from ambient temperature down to 5 K were studied for the first time. With decreasing temperature, a shift in emission wavelength and a shortening of decay time were observed. Light yield and energy resolution exhibited notable changes with temperature, and were maximized as temperature was decreased. A degradation of light yield proportionality with decreasing temperature was observed. © 2012 IEEE.
