Abstract

We report on the degradation of the scintillation yield of single crystal YAG: Ce under He+ irradiation at low energy. The decrease of the luminescence intensity as a function of fluence can be analyzed by the Birks model. The results indicate that the scintillator degrades fast and exhibits poor scintillation efficiency for low-energy irradiation. A possible degradation mechanism is proposed.
