YAG(Ce) Scintillators

YAG(Ce) cerium doped yttrium aluminum garnet crystal shows stable physical and chemical properties, high thermal conductivity, and resistance to harsh operating environments, which which makes it requisite for manufacturing ultra-thin scintillation screens of 0.01mm or thinner.  It exhibits excellent scintillating characteristics, such as high scintillating efficiency, fast decay time(75ns) and wide light pulse, and its luminous peak (550nm) can be well matched with the sensitive wavelength of the photodiode.  Because of the excellent scintillation performance of Ce:YAG crystal, it is widely used in CT, scanning electron microscope and other equipment.


OST Photonics can supply YAG(Ce) crystals and YAG(Ce) scintillation screens upon request. We can offer a variety of design options to meet the needs of our customers. In addition, we can also offer Ce:YAG transparent ceramics with a maximum diameter of 8 inches and a maximum doping concentrations of 20%, if you are interested in our Ce:YAG transparent ceramics, please feel free to contact us.
