This paper presents a characterization method to experimentally determine the angular distribution of scintillation light. By exciting LYSO crystals with a radioactive source, we measured the light angular profiles obtained with samples of different geometries in different conditions of wrapping. We also measured the angular distribution of light emitting in glue and compared it with the one emitting in air. Angular distribution of light output of photonic crystals is also provided. Consistency of the measurements is verified with conventional light output measurements. © 2013 IEEE.

Abstract

This paper presents a characterization method to experimentally determine the angular distribution of scintillation light. By exciting LYSO crystals with a radioactive source, we measured the light angular profiles obtained with samples of different geometries in different conditions of wrapping. We also measured the angular distribution of light emitting in glue and compared it with the one emitting in air. Angular distribution of light output of photonic crystals is also provided. Consistency of the measurements is verified with conventional light output measurements. © 2013 IEEE.
