Description

YAG(Ce) (Y3Al5O12:Ce) is a fast and rugged scintillation material with great mechanical properties and chemical resistance.

YAG(Ce) | Scintillation Crystal is a scintillation crystal commonly used as a phosphor in cathode ray tubes and white light-emitting diodes. It has high luminous efficacy, and its peak emission (550 nm) allows for effective coupling with silicon photodiode detector devices. The crystal also has excellent mechanical properties and is chemically resistant, which makes it suitable for use in extreme environments, and makes possible the production of thin YAG(Ce) screens.
