Hi P.Mayur

I will try to answer your questions:

1) Yield Ratio - it's the ratio between the number of photons in fast/slow components of scintillation decay. (Look 3 and 4 for more details)

2) Basically, it's modified intrinsic energy resolution of scintillators.

Rscale=sqrt(E*ScintYield)*R/2.35, where R is the energy resolution (FWHM - Full width at half maximum ) at energy E.

3 and 4) Scintillators usually are characterized by 2 time components: one fast (or prompt), the other slow (or delayed). Thus, the time evolution of the number of emitted scintillation photons N in a single scintillation event can often be described by a linear superposition of one or two exponential decays. For two decays: N=A*exp(t/Tf)+B*exp(t/Ts)
