ELJEN Products List EJ-204 Plastic Scintillator distributed by

In addition to providing the highest scintillation efficiency of any plastic scintillator, EJ-204 delivers the excellent combination of high speed and good attenuation length.  It is thus particularly well suited for high performance detector systems for nuclear and high energy physics research.
Its emission wavelength near 400 nm couples ideally with bialkali phototubes while still being long enough to be effectively used with UVT light guides.  Hence, its variant, EJ-204A is particularly well suited for use with green wavelength-shifting light guide materials.
