The scintillation response of BaF2 and YAP:Ce to protons, α particles, 16O and 28Si ions in the 5-30 MeV range has been investigated. The ratio between the fast and slow parts of the scintillator signal for BaF2 has been used to separate protons, α particles and heavier ions, and the dependence of this ratio on the particle energy has been studied. The time constants and intensities of the two components of the YAP:Ce signal were measured, as were the time constant and intensity of the weak component of the slow part of the BaF2 signal. Furthermore, the dependence of the light yield on the particle energy has been investigated for both BaF2 and YAP:Ce.
