With the wavelength of the maximum emission at 560nm, YAG(Ce) can be well matched to CCD sensors and it is known as a kind of non-hygroscopic, chemically inert inorganic scintillation material. YAG(Ce) is a reasonably fast scintillator with a relative light yield of 12% of NaI(Tl). YAG(Ce) scintillators are used in Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM), electronic imaging, beta-particle, X-radiation counters, and imaging. It has excellent temperature and mechanical characteristics which makes it requisite for manufacturing ultra-thin screens of 0.01mm. YAG(Ce) crystals have a high threshold for high-energy electrons or ions, making them suitable for a high electric current environment.
Hangzhou Shalom EO offers the YAG(Ce) single scintillation crystals grown by the Czochralski method, the dimensions could be up to Dia80mmx200mm. Optional metal coating of Aluminum, Silver with SiO2 protective layer is offered. Ultra-thin YAG(Ce) Screens of 0.05mm free sanding and 0.01mm with substrates are also procurable in Shalom EO.
