New fast and heavy scintillator
Friday, 5. June, 2015
Crytur introduces new scintillating single-crystal LuAG:Pr. It combines a high-density matrix of LuAG and Pr3+ ion which is a fast and efficient luminescence center.
LuAG:Pr has higher light output compared to BGO. It has comparable absorption as BGO. The decay time is 20ns. Hence, it can be used for high-count rate spectroscopic measurements of high-energy gamma rays.
