Gamma-ray and X-ray detectors such as PET, well logging and high energy physics.
Requirements of scintillation crystals
Bismuth germinate Bi4Ge3O12 commonly abbreviated as BGO, is the crystalline form of an inorganic oxide with cubic eulytine structure, colorless, transparent and insoluble in water. When exposed to radiation of high energy particles or other sources, such as gamma-rays, x-rays, it emits a green fluorescent light with a peak wavelength of 480nm, with its high stopping power, high scintillation efficiency, good energy resolution and non-hygroscopes, BGO is a good scintillation material and has found a wide range of applications in high energy physics, nuclear physics, space physics, nuclear medicine, geological prospecting and other industries.
Physical Properties Of BGO
LYSO crystal is an ideal generation sintillator crystal. LYSO stand for Cerium doped Lutetium Yttrium Orthosilicate. LYSO crystal has the advantages of high light output, high density, fast decay time, good energy resolution and low cost. These properties mean that LYSO is an ideal candidate for a range of ray detection applications in nuclear physics and nuclear medicine, which require higher though improved timing resolution and superior energy revolution.
Sinoceramics, Inc. can produce LYSO in high volume and can supply finished pixel or assembled customer specified array or module configurations.
