Ce-doped (Gd, La)2Si2O7(Ce:La-GPS) scintillator was found to have a good light output of around 40 000 photons/MeV, while some other parameters have not been determined so far. In order to clarify the cause for such a high light yield, some physical parameters have been estimated in this paper. The bandgap energy of Ce:La-GPS was evaluated to be over 7.13 ± 0.03 eV...

Scintillators capable of detecting both neutrons and gamma rays have generated considerable interest. In particular, the use of such scintillators with silicon photomultipliers (SiPMs) enables low-power and compact-geometry applications. Three types of Li-loaded scintillators, CLYC, CLLB, and NaIL, have been tested with a custom-designed SiPM array for temperatures between −20 °C and 50 °C. The ar... View full abstract»

Nondoped Cs2HfCl6(CHC) and alkaline earth metal-doped CHC (AE:CHC) crystals were grown by the vertical Bridgman–Stockbarger method. The spectra of the AE:CHC under X-ray excitation were similar to those for the AE-free crystal; thus, AE doping did not change emission wavelength of CHC. We determined the light outputs and energy resolutions of nondoped CHC and AE:CHC by measur... View full abstract»

| | PDF (1064 KB) | HTML

Plastic scintillators (PLSs) are potential materials for the development of a dosimeter based on linear energy transfer (LET) measurement for mixed radiation fields, such as the surroundings of accelerator facilities and in space because PLSs are composed mainly of hydrocarbon molecules, and have the effective atomic number and density similar to those of water and human tissues. In addition, PLSs... View full abstract»

• ### Photonic Crystal Slabs Applied to Inorganic Scintillators

Publication Year: 2018, Page(s):2191 - 2195
| | PDF (2512 KB) | HTML

The extraction of scintillation light from an inorganic scintillator is one of the major bottlenecks in time-of-flight positron emission tomography (ToF-PET) because it directly affects the energy and time resolution of the gamma detector. To increase the light extraction efficiency, we use photonic crystal slabs (PCS), defined as thin dielectric layers structured with a 2-D, or 3-D, periodic patt... View full abstract»

We are using the laser induced optical barriers (LIOBs) technique to fabricate scintillator detectors with combined performance characteristics of the two standard detector types, mechanically pixelated arrays, and monolithic crystals. This is done by incorporation of so-called OBs that have a refractive index (RI) lower than that of the crystal bulk. Such barriers can redirect the scintillation l... View full abstract»
