Abstract

766,726. Radiation detectors. GENERAL ELECTRIC CO. Oct. 1, 1954 [Oct. 2, 1953], No. 28372/54. Class 40 (3). A radiation detector comprises a screen 12 scintillating in response to the radiation and a light integrating container 14 which collects the light emitted by the screen and directs it on to a photomultiplier tube 18. The fluorescent screen 12 may be of zinc sulphide responding to alpha rays supported on translucent or transparent member 13. Member 13 may be a plastic scintillation phosphor responsive to either Beta or Gamma rays and may be used without the zinc sulphide layer. The inside of the integrating container is coated with white magnesium carbonate paint.
