Abstract

This paper presents a study of correlations between the initial optical and scintillation properties and their radiation damage for mass produced lead tungstate crystals. A correlation was observed between crystal's initial light outputs and the values of its initial longitudinal transmittance at 360 nm. A strong correlation was found between the emission weighted radiation induced absorption coefficients and the relative losses of the longitudinal transmittance at 440 nm. Correlations were also observed between the relative losses of crystal's light output and the relative losses of its longitudinal transmittance at 440 nm, or the emission weighted radiation induced absorption coefficients. No correlations were observed between crystal's radiation hardness and its initial longitudinal transmittance or the slope of the initial longitudinal transmittance across the band edge.
