The BaFCl: [Eu.sup.2+] powder can emit near-ultraviolet light when exposed to X-rays, and it has been well known as a photostimulable phosphor (PSP) [10].
Acceptance testing and quality control of photostimulable phosphor imaging systems.
Indirect sensors are photostimulable phosphor (PSP) plates, which resemble radiographic film, and which must be "read" by a scanner that in turn transfers the "interpreted" information to the computer.

A plate coated with photostimulable phosphor is used to capture the image in digital radiography systems.[5] This plate helps convert x-rays directly into data reconstructed at the computer.
The CR imaging plate is composed of a photostimulable phosphor, usually barium fluorohalide crystals doped with europium.
