In other words, bright scintillator
materials are dark in storage luminescence, and vice versa.
Technavio's report, Global Scintillator
Market 2016-2020, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts.
It was meant to test the response of the organic plastic scintillator
EJ 299-33, the same scintillator
used in the in-beam experiment.
5m megapixel image sensor with a pixel pitch of 125 microns and offer a cesium iodide (CsI) or gadolinium oxysulfide (GSO) scintillator
materials are used to detect, and in some cases identify, gamma rays.
It produces a lot of light, and it's very transparent, but it's a safer scintillator
," says SNO+ director Mark Chen.
X-rays are converted into light using a Kasei DRZ Standard, DRZ Plus, or a CsI scintillator
Indirect conversion, shown in Figure 2, uses a scintillator
material to convert the photons to light, then converts the light to an electrical signal with photodiodes, CCD, or CMOS imaging sensors.
The former enables DX-S to capture sharper images by minimizing scattering, caused by light spread in the scintillator
The proton detector, a CsI scintillator
, is situated on top of the storage volume; the decay protons are accelerated and focused onto it through a potential difference in the storage volume and an additional focusing coil around the detector.
To make the devices, "students taped short photomultiplier tubes to special plastic scintillator
panels and carefully wrapped the whole apparatus in black electrical tape to keep out light," the Times reports.
Additional chapters describe novel polymers for nonlinear optical applications; optically active, erbium-doped polymers; novel, fluorinated polymers, blends, and UV-curable polymeric cladding materials; hard plastic cladding materials; fluorescent optical fibers for data transmission and scintillator
polymers for detectors; design of gradient index fibers; and the effect of climatic and mechanical environments on transmission in fibers.
