Abstract
A 'phoswich' created by NaI(Tl and CsI(Na) crystals that are optically coupled via irradiation with 200 MeV protons is here used to simulate the effect on a satellite of an orbit below the radiation belts that cross the South Atlantic anomaly. Preliminary analysis of these data adumbrates the noise following activation, as well as the capabilities of a digital pulse-shape discriminator.
