Abstract

The scintillator performance characteristics of five different scintillating fiber optic screens and two conventional Gd 2O 2S:Tb screens were measured and compared. The measurements that were made included the angular dependence of light emission relative to the normal, the modulation transfer function, and the absolute effective conversion efficiency. The relative error in the light output calculation results from the Lambertian source assumption is discussed.
