Scintillation tank containing 800 gallons of liquid scintillator at Oak Ridge National Laboratory

"Scintillation tank containing 800 gallons of liquid scintillator. It is now installed at the end of a 40 meter flight tube which radiates from the Oak Ridge Linear Accelerator target room. This apparatus has provided much of the detailed information on the radiative capture cross section of fission and fertile isotopes such as 235 U and 238 U."
