Emission spectrum excited by ionizing radiation is called radioluminescence, and some groups use the area of the radioluminescence to evaluate the scintillation light yield.
134),(138),(139) In order to discuss the light yield of the scintillator, any pulse-height analysis should be conducted as mentioned in the introduction, though some groups still continue to use the radioluminescence intensity.
