The motivation of the present paper is to study the performance of EJ 299-33 scintillator in online and off-line analysis in high rate scattering for nuclear reaction experiments performed with heavy ions. An experiment was carried out inside the CHIMERA chamber using 24Mg beams at 71.5 MeV and 81 MeV impinging on 92ZrO2 target. The plastic scintillator was backed by a photomultiplier tube and the anode pulses were digitized through 100 MHz GET electronics for the purpose of pulse shape discrimination (PSD) studies. Performances of the plastic scintillator have been tested with respect to PSD capabilities and energy spectra analysis under beam irradiations in a high background environment.

Abstract

The motivation of the present paper is to study the performance of EJ 299-33 scintillator in online and off-line analysis in high rate scattering for nuclear reaction experiments performed with heavy ions. An experiment was carried out inside the CHIMERA chamber using 24Mg beams at 71.5 MeV and 81 MeV impinging on 92ZrO2 target. The plastic scintillator was backed by a photomultiplier tube and the anode pulses were digitized through 100 MHz GET electronics for the purpose of pulse shape discrimination (PSD) studies. Performances of the plastic scintillator have been tested with respect to PSD capabilities and energy spectra analysis under beam irradiations in a high background environment.
