Growth of a number of next generation scintillation crystals including LaCl3, LaBr3, Cs2LiLaBr6 (CLLB) and Cs2LiLa(Br,Cl)6 (CLLBC) with exceptional energy resolution, timing properties, temperature response and neutron sensitivity.
These find application in-
- Radio-isotope identification devices
- Space and research applications
- Gamma ray spectroscopy
- Oil well logging
- Positron Emission Tomography (PET) in medical imaging
In order to escalate the commercialization efforts for these next gen scintillators APL supplies High purity Lanthanum chlorides , bromides and Iodides in kilogram quantities.
