Research Institution
65458 Scintillation spectrometers, consisting of inorganic scintillation crystals coupled to photomultiplier tubes (PMTs), are an important element of nuclear and elementary particle physics experiments. Performance of the detection systems used in these experiments is often limited by the properties of scintillation detectors available at present. This project will investigate a new scintillator that appears promising due to its high light output, fast response, and excellent energy resolution. Phase I will demonstrate the feasibility of applying the new scintillator towards gamma ray spectroscopy. Single crystals of the proposed scintillator will be grown and their scintillation performance will be evaluated. Commercial Applications And Other Benefits as described by awardee: In addition to scientific uses in nuclear, high energy, and space physics experiments, the new scintillator should be commercially applicable to medical imaging, NDE, bore hole logging, industrial CT imaging, X-ray instrumentation, and materials analysis.
