Abstract : A large liquid scintillation detector was developed for use in conjunction with a Cherenkov meson telescope to investigate the interaction with small energy transfer of high energy muons with heavy nucleii. The detector is in the form of a cubic plexiglass box and employs decalin activated with alpha-NPO and p-terpheny as the scintillating material. The electronic equipment associated with the detector was assembled and tested. An energy spetrum for local background and cosmic radiation was determined. (Author)
