Y2SiO5:Ce (YSO:Ce) or Cerium doped Silicate Yttrinm is a bright and fast light scintillator with an emission peaked at 420 nm, it is easy to match with PMT and SiPM readout. YSO(Ce) has a similar decay time to LYSO(Ce) (50-70ns), but no background (Lutecium). Mechanical processing of YSO: Ce scintillators is easier compared to other silicates. YSO(Ce) is often made into a pixellated array and multi-layer arrays for nuclear medicine Positron Emission Tomography (PET) applications.
Hangzhou Shalom EO offers the custom YSO(Ce) scintillation crystals arrays according to customer's request, our LYSO(Ce) arrays are widely used in the Radiation Detection, Security industries, Semiconductors, Photo optic, Positron Emission Tomographies (PET), and Nuclear medicine. Bulk YSO(Ce) Crystals are also available in Shalom EO.
