Abstract

A scintillator, in the chemical sense, is a system which can convert radioactive particle energy to visible and near ultraviolet photon energy. A phenomenon related to scintillation is fluorescence. The difference between scintillation and fluorescence is the source of excitation energy. In the case of scintillation, the exciting energy comes from radioactive particles, while in fluorescence, the exciting energy comes from ultraviolet light.
