CLYC Scintillators

CLYC Scintillators

The first practical gamma-neutron crystal for use as a replacement for both medium resolution gamma-ray detectors and Helium-3 proportional counter tubes for neutron detection.

Growing CLYC Scintillator Crystals in Microgravity – An Experiment in Space

RMD collaborated with NASA on growing crystals of Cs2LiYCl6:Ce Scintillators in Microgravity (CLYC-Crystal Growth) using a CLYC Scintillator crystal that, for the first time, effectively detects both gamma-rays and neutrons. High-quality crystals are essential to a wide variety of applications and the microgravity environment produces better quality crystals. Analyzing CLYC crystals grown in microgravity helps researchers better understand exact conditions needed to produce the highest-quality, defect-free crystals. Insights from this work support commercial scale-up of CLYC scintillators on Earth.
