Inorganic Scintillation Crystals

Inorganic Scintillation Crystals

Inorganic Scintillation Crystals are crystals grown in high temperature furnaces. Dynasil has furnace capacity for growing crystals at both RMD and Hilger Crystals. We work with the following scintillation crystals as well as many others and are constantly working with research partners to explore commercial applications for crystal scintillators.

  • CLYC: 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.
  • CsI(Tl) or cesium iodide doped with thallium: these crystals are one of the brightest scintillators. Its maximum wavelength of light emission is in the green region at 550 nm.
  • CsI: undoped cesium iodide emits predominantly at 315 nm, is only slightly hygroscopic, and has a very short decay time, making it suitable for fast timing applications.
  • LYSO (Lu1.8Y0.2SiO5(Ce)): comparable in density to other scintillators but much faster and with much higher light output; excellent for medical imaging applications. LYSO is non-hygroscopic.
