I looked for something, even qualitative, and could not find anything
interesting. I found some stuff related to fiber optics that surprised me
(not as big an improvement as I expected), but I do not know how that
applies to scintillation detectors. I do not *think* a scintillation
detector will work at all without coupling compound.
