Description/Abstract

Scintillation counters are used to detect fast moving elementary particles in nuclear physics scattering experiments. The scintillation counters of Jefferson Labs CLAS detector are presently being refurbished at ODU for future experiments with the Large Acceptance Detector in Hall C. Defective counters are being replaced with new ones. The methods of characterizing and testing scintillation counters and amplification photomultiplier tubes will be discussed.
