Abstract

A procedure for measuring energy releases in scintillation detectors by using a logarithmic RC converter in combination with a device that suppresses photomultiplier tube afterpulses is described. The total range of measured energies is 5.8 MeV to 11.6 GeV. The afterpulse suppression ratio is more than 200. The output pulse of the RC converter is synchronized with the leading edge of the anode signal from the photomultiplier tube.
