- We have shown that for quasidiffusive phonon propagation in an isotropic crystal the diffusion coefficient D = KL8/9, where K is a material constant and L is the distance between the phonon source and point of detection. We have demonstrated this is the case for BaF2 bombarded by alpha-particles. This implies that pulse shape analysis may provide a mechanism to achieve position sensitivity in phonon mediated detectors. (C) 1999 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
