Some scintillators are crystalline, like cesium iodide. Scintillators such as gadolinium oxysulfide phosphors are granular, which can tend to scatter light and cause a loss of photons.
To focus on suspected shape-shifting by dusters, the Charlottesville team repeatedly condensed cesium iodide vapor in cooler helium gas to form a stream containing hundreds of dusters.
The CXDI-501C and CXDI-501G DR detectors have 9.5m megapixel image sensor with a pixel pitch of 125 microns and offer a cesium iodide (CsI) or gadolinium oxysulfide (GSO) scintillator, respectively.
For DR, one or two detectors with either gadolinium or cesium iodide technology can be used.
