Single crystals with Aluminum housing and optical window
Cerium-doped lanthanum chloride LaCl3(Ce) crystal belongs to hexagonal system, the light output of LaCl3(Ce) crystals is similar to the NaI(Tl) scintillators, but its decay time is 28ns which is only 1/10 of NaI(TI) scintillators, furthermore, the energy resolution of LaCl3(Ce) is 1/2~2/3 of NaI(Tl) crystals, and it also has 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.
Hangzhou Shalom EO offers the custom LaCl3(Ce) scintillator crystals upon customer's requirment, the maxium size available is ɸ 75 mm x 75 mm. The LaCl3(Ce) crystals would usually encapsulated in the aluminum housing with a glass light outpu windows, the photomultiplier tube (PMT) and electronic modules could be assemblied if it is needed.
