Crystal Compass

Finding the right scintillation crystal for your x-ray and gamma-ray detection application is challenging. So, we created the Crystal Compass, a guided tool to help you navigate and choose from a broad range of crystals best suited for your application. With each step, we’ll narrow down the list of crystals to match your specific requirements.

Ready? Answer each question, and click the Next button that appears at the bottom of the page. If a question isn’t relevant to your application, choose “Skip” and click Next.
