Integral elements of the C7410 are the C-MOS sensor which features a 2-D active detector matrix of 256x256 photodiodes with FET switches, and the FOS, comprised of a fiber optic plate with a Csl scintillator. The C-MOS photodiode array is sensitive to the blue green emission of the Csl scintillator in the FOS.
LiSr2I5: Eu (LSI)- Neutron Gamma-Ray Scintillator surpasses those of CLYC in gamma-ray and thermal neutron detection, the first true multi-mode scintillator.
Technavio's analysts forecast the global scintillator market to grow at a CAGR of 5.68% during the period 2016-2020.
Specifically, Borexino is a scintillator detector [50] which employs as active detection medium a mixture of pseudocumene (PC, 1,2,4-trimethylbenzene) and PPO (2,5-diphenyloxazole, a fluorescent dye) at a concentration of 1.5 g/L.
[UKPRwire, Fri Jul 26 2019] Optical ceramics may be defined as transparent polycrystalline materials that could be used in place of single crystal scintillators. Ceramic fabrication methods are adopted for their production and the scintillator material chosen should be transparent in its emission wavelength.

This, combined with substantial improvements in scintillator quantum efficiency, detector circuitry and other DAS components, results in a dose-efficient detector with ultra-high resolution capabilities.
In other words, bright scintillator materials are dark in storage luminescence, and vice versa.
J-PET consists of three concentric cylindrical layers of axially arranged [gamma] detection modules based on strips of EJ-230 plastic scintillator as shown schematically in Figure 1.
Park and Joo developed an underwater beta radiation monitoring sensor using a CaF2 : Eu, YAG:Ce, YAP: Ce scintillator [5].
Due to the great importance of inorganic scintillator materials in the field of ionizing nuclear radiation detection, they are a very suitable to utilize in many applications such as technology of space, the design of nuclear devices, and medicinal diagnostics [1].
