This thesis is concerned with a proton detector matrix used in a measurement of the 12C(gamma,Pgamma')1B reaction. The matrix consists of 20 CsI(Tl) crystals, each of which is read out by a photodiode. Chapter 1 gives an introduction into the physics of the experiment and explains the aim and execution of this experiment. Chapter 2 is a description of the detector composition including the electronics. Chapter 3 contains measurements which have been made in order to obtain optimum energy resolution and uniform light collection efficiency for the detector. Chapter 4 describes some Monte Carlo models. These models are investigations into the light collection efficiencies for different crystal and diode sizes and the proton detection characteristics. Chapter 5 gives a description of the setup used in the 12C(gamma,Pgamma')1B experiment. It also presents some preliminary results of this experiment.
