Infrared scintillation: a comparison between gaseous and liquid xenon

G Bressi, G. Carugno, E Conti, C Del Noce, D Iannuzzi

Research output: Contribution to JournalArticleAcademicpeer-review


Light yield and spectrum of infrared (IR) scintillation in Xe are different in gaseous and liquid phases. In gas, the spectrum consists mainly of a broad line centered at 1300 nm. In liquid, light is emitted primarily below 1200 nm and with a lower yield. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
