Abstract: A study is described of the nature of afterflow in inorganic scintillation phosphors when bombarded by high energy gamma radiation. The afterflow characteristics of several of the more important scintillation phosphors were studied, both under standard conditions and under variable temperature and pressure. All of the important inorganic phosphors studied exhibit varying degrees of afterflow, and in cases where the level of activity being measured varies by orders of magnitude, the effect of residual light from the crystal becomes important.
