Abstract

Results of light output measurements for a polystyrene scintillator deuterated to a degree of 96 at. % are presented. Applications of the deuterated scintillator are considered, in particular, as an active detector. In order to polarize the hydrogen nuclei in the scintillation target, a special additive, 2,2,6,6-tetramethyl-piperidine-1-oxyl (TEMPO), was introduced into it. This resulted in a light output of the sample with a thickness of 3.6 mm 50% that of the initial sample.
