Scintillation Crystal Materials

Inorganic scintillator crystals are crystals often grown in high temperature furnaces, often with a doping of activator impurity. The most widely used inorganic scintillation crystals is NaI(Tl) (thallium-doped sodium iodide), NaI(Tl) has a large light output. Other popular inorganic scintillators are CsI(Tl), LYSO(Ce), CsI(Na), BGO, YAG(Ce), CaF2(Eu), BaF2, CdWO4, GAGG(Ce), LuAg(Ce), GOS, LSO, LaBr3(Ce), LaCl3(Ce) and CeBr3. CsI(Tl), LYSO(Ce), BGO, GAGG(Ce) and CdWO4 are often made into pixelated array to be used in X-ray scanning security machine and medical diagnostic machine of computed tomography (CT) and  positron emission tomography (PET). Newly developed crystals LaBr3(Ce), LaCl3(Ce) and CeBr3 scintillation crystals has a excellent light output and extremely high energy resolution. And YAG(Ce), GAGG(Ce) and LuAG(Ce) scintillator thin screen are often needed in the high resolution imaging applications, such as proton beam, electron beam low energy or soft x-ray imaging, VUV and DUV optical applications. 

Hangzhou Shalom EO offers variety of inorganic scintillators, which includes: the polished crystals with or without reflectors, encapsulated crystals, pixelated arrays, scintillator screens and detector assembly consist of PMT and scintillators.
