YSO(Ce) Scintillators

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 supply YSO(Ce) crystals, YSO(Ce) scintillation screens and YSO(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.
