    Abstract

    A novel custom-developed scintillator for laser fusion diagnostics is reported. With the aim of diagnosing scattered neutrons from the imploded high-density fusion plasma, a fast response lithium-6 glass scintillator has been developed. Praseodymium, instead of the more widely-used cerium was chosen as the dopant. Sufficiently fast luminescence lifetime for scattered neutron diagnostics (<20 ns) was experimentally observed, and the feasibility was successfully shown in laser-fusion experiments at the GEKKO XII facility of the Institute of Laser Engineering, Osaka University.
