Abstract

Performance of the LaBr3(Ce) scintillator for nuclear resonance fluorescence (NRF) experiment was investigated. Linearity and energy resolutions of the LaBr3(Ce) scintillator of 3 inch in diameter x 3 inch in thickness were measured using NRF scattering gamma ray from 208Pb (5.5 MeV and 7.3 MeV) and 24Mg (10.7 MeV). The linearity of the output for the gamma ray energy was less than 1 % and the energy resolution of the scintillator in keV was almost proportional to the square root of the gamma ray energy up to 10.7 MeV.
