YSO (Y2SiO5) belongs to the monoclinic system. YSO(Ce) | Scintillation Crystal is a scintillation crystal with the best combination of properties available at present.

YSO(Ce) | Scintillation Crystal emits 420 nm light and couples well with PMT under the stimulation of high energy. It also has the advantage of high light yield, short decay time, non-deliquescence, and all around stable physical and chemical properties. Owing to its excellent time and energy resolution, YSO(Ce) | Scintillation Crystal is widely used in radiation detection, dosimetry, and security industries.

YSO(Ce) | Scintillation Crystal is a new type of scintillation material with excellent scintillation properties, including:
