Abstract :

The scintillation detectors (SDs) based on organic plastic scintillators (OPS) are one of the basic detectors in HEP experiments. The technologies of OPS production as bars (strips) and tiles, their optical and physical properties, light collection based on wavelength shifting (WLS) fibers coupled to multi-pixel vacuum and silicon PMs are presented. SDs are multifunctional i.e. calorimeters, triggers, tracking, time-of-flight and veto-systems are examples of their field of applications. The use of SDs in many HEP experiments on the searching for quarks, new particles and H-bosons (D0, ATLAS and CMS), quark-gluon plasma (ALICE), CP-violation (LHCb and KLOE), ├?┬Ż-oscillation (MINOS and OPERA), and cosmic particles (AMS-2) are discussed. SDs still holds great promise for future HEP experiments due to such properties as high segmentation, WLS fiber light collection and multi-pixel silicon PMs.
