Description

CeBr3 | Scintillation Crystal is a scintillator that offers high light output without background radiation, making it ideal for use in environmental monitoring.

CeBr3 | Scintillation Crystal is a scintillation material with excellent peformance, including high energy resolution and time resolution; high light output; good energy nonlinearity; and fast decay time. Additionally, due to the composition of CeBr3, its crystal elements have no natural radioactive isotopes and does not bring background radiation. Taking into account this property, CeBr3 is better than LaBr3(Ce) and LaCl3(Ce) crystals and equivalent to NaI(Tl), which lends it better performance in environmental monitoring.
