Cerium doped Lutetium Yttrium Silicate scintillation crystal (LYSO(Ce) scintillator) is an ideal generation scintillator crystal. LYSO scintillator has the advantages of high light output and density, quick decay time, and excellent energy resolution. These properties make LYSO an ideal candidate for a range of ray detection applications in nuclear physics and nuclear medicine, which require higher, improved timing resolution and superior energy revolution. It is ideal for applications that require high throughput, good timing, and energy resolution, such as time-of-flight Positron Emission Tomography (PET). PET applications have traditionally used arrays of BGO. But LYSO crystal completely beat BGO on density, energy resolution, and timing.
Hangzhou Shalom EO offers LYSO(Ce) pixelated scintillators and crystal matrix, featuring high geometric precision, and homogeneous light output, which is one of the most popular scintillators used for PET facilities, including PET for human diagnosis, animal diagnosis, and specific organs like brain, breast. Furthermore, for PET equipment requiring higher resolutions, single layers of scintillation arrays could be stacked into multilayer scintillation arrays to further enhance the resolution. For the purpose, Shalom EO also offers Multilayer LYSO(Ce) Scintillation Arrays. If you are looking for Bulk LYSO(Ce) Crystals, just click on the link to switch the catalog on our site.
