I have a basic understanding of scintillators. I that the answer has something
to do with the fact that beta radioactivity cannot penetrate the glass case,
however I do not feel confident enough to be able to explan the answer to
someone else as I feel that I do not know enough to make someone fully
understand the answer to the question. Can you please help me?
