YSO(Ce) Array

YSO(Ce) cerium doped yttrinm silicate belongs to monoclinic rare earth orthosilicate crystal, which has a peak emission wavelength of 420nm. YSO(Ce) scintillators have a similar decay time to LYSO(Ce) (50-70ns), but it has no background (Lutecium), which is critical for precise detection fields. YSO(Ce) crystal has a high density of 4.45g/cm^3, and high radiation resistance, it has good mechanical properties and is non-deliquescent. YSO(Ce) scintillator crystals are used in high energy, nuclear and space physics, nuclear medicine, Positron emission tomography (PET), and industrial Non-Destructive Test (NDT) applications.

 

OST Photonics can manufacture YSO(Ce) arrays according to our customers' different design options in terms of pixel size, the number of pixels, reflector materials and crystal surface finishes. We offer a variety of design options and reflector materials to optimize the array performance. Our manufacturing process can ensure high light output as well as excellent pixel to pixel uniformity with minimal crosstalk. Furthermore, offset YSO(Ce) arrays (multilayer YSO(Ce) arrays) are also available upon requests.
