crystals offer a breakthrough in the area of nuclear radiation detection most closely associated with border security and terroristic threat reduction," commented Amy Eskilson, CEO of Inrad Optics.
Applications of this type of scintillator
in complex nuclear physics experiments or in homeland security and nonproliferation and safeguards are now possible.
It produces a lot of light, and it's very transparent, but it's a safer scintillator
," says SNO+ director Mark Chen.

For medical imaging applications, the panel features an efficient Cesium Iodide (CsI) scintillator
optimized for scanning at 80-90 kilovolts (kV) in order to minimize the X-ray dose to the patient.
The former enables DX-S to capture sharper images by minimizing scattering, caused by light spread in the scintillator
of products and line speeds with detector resolution, 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.
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.
Radioactivity was measured in a Tri-Carb 1900CA (Packard, Downers Grove, IL, USA) liquid scintillator
All radiation detection devices sense radiation using either a sodium iodide crystal or a plastic scintillator
