Description

LaCl3(Ce) | Scintillation Crystal is a new scintillation material that offers excellent energy resolution with light yield comparable to NaI(Tl).

LaCl3(Ce) | Scintillation Crystal is a new generation of nuclear radiation detection materials. It offers excellent performance, including great energy resolution, good time resolution, nonlinearity, and fast decay time. Its light yield is equivalent to that of NaI(Tl); its decay time is 1/10 of NaI’s.; and its energy resolution is 1/2–1/3 of NaI. LaCl3(Ce) has good mechanical properties and has a wide temperature range with energy resolution consistency as well.
