Feasibility study of PbWO4 and PbMoO4 crystal scintillators for cryogenic rare events experiments

Abstract:

Scintillation properties of PbWO4 and PbMoO4 have been studied as potential cryogenic scintillators for rare event searches. The light output and decay kinetics of PbWO4 and PbMoO4 crystals for excitation with 241Am α particles were examined over the temperature range 7300 K. The α/γ ratio was measured with a PbMoO4 crystal scintillator for 5.3 MeV α particles, and the ability to distinguish between signals induced by α particles and γ quanta by pulse shape discrimination was assessed for the...
