Abstract

Doped CSI (Cesium iodide) is wildly used in many detectors. Pure cesium iodide can only perform well at low temperature due to its luminous properties. Its luminous efficiency at low temperature is even better than that of impurity-containing cesium iodide. So we want to measure its properties at low temperatures. In chapter 3, we measure the light yield of the pure CSI, which is the important property as a detector. We also introduce our experimental equipment and methods. In chapter 4, the quenching factor represents the efficiency of energy deposition. This value is a key point for our future detection of neutrinos.
