Fluctuations of Track Structure and Energy Resolution of Scintillators
The problem of intrinsic energy resolution of scintillators is studied in terms of the distribution of concentration of electrons around holes in the track, probability of photon emission from regions with high electron-hole concentration and probability that photons are emitted in the shaping time interval from regions with low concentration. The paper shows how fluctuations of the measured response is connected with the fluctuations in the track.
