Scintillation Signal in XEMIS2, a Liquid Xenon Compton Camera with 3γ Imaging Technique

Abstract : The XEMIS project (XEnon Medical Imaging System), which makes use of 3γ imaging technique and liquid xenon Compton camera, aims to make a precise 3D localization of a specific radioactive emitter and to reduce drastically (100 times less) the injected activity to the patient in cancer diagnosis. The 3γ imaging is characterized by the simultaneous detection of 3 γ-rays emitted by$^{44}$Sc which is a (β+, γ) emitter. The second prototype XEMIS2 is a liquid xenon cylindrical camera for small animal imaging. The active volume of XEMIS2 is surrounded by a set of VUV-sensitive Hamamatsu photomultipliers, for the scintillation signals detection. A pulse-shaping amplifier was tested in XEMIS1 for the readout of the scintillation signal of the PMT. The typical output pulse shows a relatively good performance of the pulse-shaping amplifier providing a possible solution for XEMIS2 scintillation DAQ. Meanwhile, the pulse-shaping amplifier and the constant fraction discriminator (CFD) have lay the foundation of the preliminary design of XEMIS2 scintillation signal detection chain.
