CsI(Tl) Scintillator Array

Scintillator CsI(Tl)’s maximum of the broad emission situated at 550nm which allows Si-photodiodes to be used to detect the emission. The use of a scintillator-photodiode pair makes it possible to diminish significantly the size of the detecting system (due to the use of photodiode instead of PMT), to do without high-voltage supply source, and to use detecting systems in magnetic fields. The high radiation resistance (up to 10 Gy) allows CsI(TI) to be used in nuclear, medium, radiation detection and high-energy physics etc. Special treatment ensures obtaining of CsI(TI) scintillators with a low afterglow (less than 0.1% after 5 ms) for the use in safety inspection and imaging.


Laser Optics and Components

Laser Optics are used in a wide range of laser instrumentation or laser applications, including beam steering or material processing. Laser Optics use specific substrates, coatings, or a combination of the two to provide superior performance at specific laser wavelengths or over a range of wavelengths. Many Laser Optics feature laser damage thresholds designed for pulsed or CW lasers. Using a Laser Optic that has a lower laser damage threshold than what the laser requires can lead to damaging the Optical Component.

Plastic scintillator performance parameters

The performance parameters of the plastic scintillator vary depending on the matrix, the scintillation substance, and the second solute, the difference in the wavelength and the difference in scores. Therefore, the varieties of plastic scintillators are various and the performance parameters vary greatly.
The emission spectrum of the plastic scintillator is consistent with the emission spectrum of the scintillator, and the emission spectrum of the scintillator
different. When a wave remover is used, the emission spectrum of the plastic scintillator is consistent with that of the wave shifter.
The light output of the plastic scintillator increases with the increase of the concentration of the scintillator substance, and reaches an extreme value when the mass concentration is 1% to 4%. As the concentration continues to increase, the light output decreases. Adding 0.01% to 0.02% of the mass of the agent can dramatically increase the light output.
Large quantities of heavy charged particles or electrons are radiated over a long period of time, causing the plastic scintillator to be damaged and the light output to be reduced.
The energy response of the line attenuation coefficient of the plastic scintillator is shown in the figure.

Lithium Aluminate (LiAlO2) Crystals and Substrates

Lithium Aluminate or LiAlO2 is a potential substrate for III-V nitride thin films due to its excellent lattice mismatch to GaN (<0.2% at <100> ), chemical stability at high temperature and cost effective. The lattice parameter of Lithium Dioxogallate (LiGaO2) and Lithium Aluminium Oxide (γ) (LiAlO2) crystal can match with the Gallium Nitride film very well. The mismatch coefficients are 0.2% and 1.4% only for LiGaO2 and LiAlO2, much smaller than that of the common used substrates such as <0001> sapphire (14%), <100> MgO (3%), <0001> SiC (3.5%). The Gallium Nitride film is a very important material for blue, violet, UV and white LED. A substrate material that matches the film to be grown well is very important to get a nice GaN epitaxial film.

Plastic scintillator performance parameters

Plastic scintillator performance parameters with the substrate, scintillating material and the second solute – shift the difference between the different and the difference. Therefore, the variety of plastic scintillators is varied, the performance parameters vary widely.

The emission spectrum of a plastic scintillator is consistent with the emission spectrum of a scintillating substance, whereas the emission spectrum of a scintillator

different. The emission spectrum of the plastic scintillator coincides with that of the wave-shifting agent when the wave-shifting agent is applied.

The light output of plastic scintillator increases with the increase of scintillation material concentration, reaching the extreme value when mass concentration is 1% ~ 4%. Continue to increase the concentration, but the light output decreases. The addition of mass concentration of 0.01% ~ 0.02% of the wave-shift agent can make a sharp increase in light output.

For a long time heavy fluences heavy charged particles or electron radiation, so that the plastic scintillator damage and thus reduce the light output.
