CsI(Tl) scintillators

Thallium activated Cesium Iodide or CsI(Tl) crystals is one of the brightest scintillator.  The maximum of the broad emission situated at 550nm is is well suited for photodiode readout. CsI(Tl) is slightly hygroscopic with plastic mechanical properties. Combined with the relatively good radiation hardness properties, CsI(Tl) is well suited for High Energy Physics.
