The first Gamma-ray Burst (GRB) counterpart to a gravitational wave event, GRB 170817A, proved that monitoring for gamma-ray transients is an essential part of multi-messenger astronomy. As a result, research teams, globally, are now working towards the next generation of GRB instruments. To aid this work, we are creating a database of pulse waveforms for scintillation detectors over gamma-ray energies from 30-1000 keV. This database will inform performance estimates, such as the minimum energy threshold and pulse shape discrimination ability in phoswich-style detectors. We will present initial results from the database using a Hamamatsu R12699 flat panel photomultiplier tube (PMT) coupled to NaI(Tl) and CsI(Na) scintillators.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and readers, and in "proceeding" format which is more detailed and complete.
