Abstract: 
The work presents the results of the development of the industrial production of organic molecular scintillators on the base of stilbene and p-terphenyl single crystals for custom and ecology monitoring devices in a form of detectors for fast neutrons and short-range ionizing particles. The results of investigation of scintillation characteristics of the obtained stilbene and p-terphenyl detectors are shown.
Keywords: growth technology, organic scintillator, p-terphenyl, polycrystal, purification, stilbene
