Single crystals with Aluminum housing and optical window
Cerium-doped Lanthanum Chloride or LaCl3(Ce) Scintillator Crystals belong to hexagonal crystalline systems, the light output of LaCl3(Ce) crystals is similar to the NaI(Tl) scintillators, but their decay time is 28ns which is only 1/10 of NaI(TI) scintillators, and the energy resolution of LaCl3(Ce) is 1/2~2/3 of NaI(Tl) crystals, and it also has good mechanical properties. In addition, LaCl3:Ce crystals have excellent temperature performance, they have a good consistency of energy resolution within a wide temperature range.
Hangzhou Shalom EO offers the custom LaCl3(Ce) scintillator crystals upon custom requirements, with the maximum dimension of Dia 75 mm x 75 mm. The LaCl3(Ce) crystals would often be encapsulated in the aluminum housing with one or two optical windows. Photomultiplier tubes (PMT) and electronic modules could be integrated with the scintillation detector if it is needed.
