In this paper, I focus on that scintillators
and scintillation detectors.
Increased use of plastic scintillators
in applications requiring high performance
This excellent PSD capability is what makes this new scintillator
unique among the plastic scintillators
and is a welcome feature from the point of neutron detection and identification in the presence of gamma-ray background.
Behind that is another gadolinium orthosilicate scintillator
capable of detecting gamma rays, which are high-energy photons more penetrating than X-rays.
Teijin Chemicals believes that SCINTIREX will help to reduce the total cost of radiation detectors by slashing the production cost of scintillators
to one tenth or less of current levels.
Both properties are relevant to plastic scintillators
The topics include the real-time imaging of the electrical field distribution in CdZnTe at low temperature, modeling the crystal growth of CdZnTe, growing boron carbide crystals from a copper flux, scintillating metal organic frameworks as a new class of radiation detection materials, the opto-electrical characterization and x-ray mapping of large-volume CdZnTe radiation detectors, and the synthesis and structures of elpasolite halide scintillators
are more expensive, harder to manufacture, and fragile; scintillators
that are less costly, easier to manufacture, and more rugged offer lower performance.
It's less toxic than most chemical liquid scintillators
Cosmic-ray events are vetoed by the veto scintillators
shown in Fig.
When used with scintillators
, such as cesium iodide, that absorb X-rays efficiently and emit visible light near the peak of the spectral sensitivity of silicon, photodiodes made of amorphous silicon can function as charge storage devices.
Zinsser Analytic, for instance, promotes the solvents on which its aptly named Quicksafe scintillators
are based as "nontoxic, biodegradable, odorless" and its scintillators
themselves as "pleasant to use and easy to store and transport.
