The growth of a very large number of lead tungstate crystals for compact muon solenoid experiments at CERN is described. 75,000 lead tungstate scintillation crystals (230 mm long, 40 mm in diameter) were produced for electromagnetic calorimeters. The book describes all aspects of production of these crystals, from equipment to testing. In this book: Application of crystal scintillators in high-energy physics (structure of PWO crystals, point defects and scintillation properties of PWO crystals, special features of application of PWO crystals in the electromagnetic calorimeters of the compact ...
