Abstract

Lu2SiO5:Ce (LSO) scintillator is one of the scintillators used for positron emission tomography because of its high efficiency of gamma-ray detection. We tried to use LSO for positron annihilation lifetime and age-momentum correlation measurements because the high efficiency is needed to reduce the positron irradiation effect during measurements. The high efficiency with reasonable time resolution was successfully obtained by use of the dynode signals from photomultiplier tubes.
