With the wavelength of the maximum emission at 560nm, YAG(Ce) can well matched to CCD sensitivity. 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-ray and X-ray counters and imaging. It has excellent temperature and mechanical characteristics which makes it suitable for ultra-thin screen of 0.01mm. YAG(Ce) crystals has a high threshold for high energy electrons or ions, makes it suitable for high electric current environment.
Hangzhou Shalom EO offers the YAG(Ce) single scintillation crystals grown by Czochralski method, the largest crystals size could be up to D80x200mm, ultra-thin YAG(Ce) screen of 0.05mm free sanding and 0.01mm with substrates are available, and the optional metal coating of Aluminum, Silver with SiO2 protective layer are offered.
