Lacl3(Ce) crystals belong to hexagonal system, the light output of LaCl3:Ce crystals is similar to the NaI(Tl) crystals, the decay time is 28ns, only 1/10 of NaI:TI, the energy resolution is 1/2~2/3 of NaI(Tl) crystals, they also have a good mechanical properties. In addition, LaCl3:Ce crystals excellent temperature performance, they have a good consistency of energy resolution within a wide temperature range.
