LSO(Ce) Scintillators

LSO(Ce) cerium doped lutecium silicate crystal is a new type of inorganic scintillation crystal material, it has the advantages of high light yield, short decay time, good rad-hard properties, high density, high effective atomic number and non-hygroscopic etc. LSO(Ce) crystals are widely used in PET, nuclear physics, nuclear medicine, high energy physics, geological exploration and other fields.


OST Photonics can supply LSO(Ce) crystals, LSO(Ce) scintillation screens and LSO(Ce) arrays upon request. We can offer a variety of design options and reflector materials to optimize array performance and ensure the array's high light output, excellent uniformity and minimal crosstalk.


Application of LSO(Ce) Scintillators (LSO:Ce Scintillators)


  • Positron emission tomography (PET)

  • Nuclear medicine

  • Geological exploration

  • High energy and nuclear physics


Advantages of LSO(Ce) Scintillators (LSO:Ce Scintillators)


  • High light output

  • Fast decay time

  • Mechanically robust characteristics, no cleavage planes, and are non-hygroscopic

  • Good rad-hard properties

  • High density


The Ability of OST Photonics


  • Maximum Size: ɸ80mm x 200mm

  • Available items: monolithic crystal, scintillation screen, pixellated array


Scintillation Screen Design Options of LSO(Ce) Scintillators (LSO:Ce Scintillators)


  • Freestanding ultra-thin scintillation screen.

  • Ultra-thin scintillation screens can be coupled to a substrate with optical adhesives in order to achieve better optical readout.

  • Scintillation screens can be inserted into frames(Aluminum, Stainless steel) for easier manipulation.

  • We can provide customized markings such as a grid, cross, or scale on the surface of the screen for easier beam visualization.

  • We can provide various coating on the surface of the screen upon request, such as reflection coatings(Al, Au, Ag etc.), AR coating, diffusion painting(TiO2, Al2O3), and conductive coatings(Al, ITO, C).
