Liquid scintillators have many applications in neutron and gamma detection. They also provide low-cost alternatives to other scintillators in applications where large volumes are required.
Different base materials provide pulse shape discrimination properties, high flash point, performance at low or high temperatures, or other properties. Some scintillators are loaded with organo-metallic compounds to increase their neutron or photon cross-sections. Certain formulations are designed to be economical in large volumes. Liquid scintillator concentrates designed to be diluted on site are also available.
Liquid scintillator components are purified, mixed, and transferred into cells or storage containers. Quantities produced range from less than 1 liter to several thousand liters. Liquid scintillators are available as detectors or as bulk materials. Liquid scintillator concentrates designed to be diluted on site are available.
