Abstract [en]

The light response of two thin inorganic scintillators based on YAP:Ce and LaBr3:Ce crystals has been measured with protons in the 4-8 MeV energy range at the Uppsala tandem accelerator and in the 826 MeV energy range at the Legnaro tandem accelerator. The crystals have been calibrated in situ with Cs-137 and Co-60 gamma-ray sources. The relative light yields of protons with respect to gammas have been measured and are here reported to be (96 +/- 2)% and (80 +/- 2)% for YAP:Ce and LaBr3:Ce, respectively. The results open up to the development of a Telescope Proton Recoil spectrometer based on either of the two crystals as alternative to a silicon based spectrometer for applications to high neutron fluxes.
