APL manufactures and supplies high-purity, low moisture powders and beads as feedstock for single-crystal growth of scintillators. These are used in X-ray or Gamma-ray/neutron detectors. Applications include medical imaging, national security, oil-well logging, etc. Listed below are some details of the products we supply.

Cesium iodide and thallium iodide for flat panel detectors

Cesium iodide is used to grow scintillator single crystals or thin films used for X-ray imaging. APL provides high-purity cesium iodide powder with typical ship volumes ranging from tens to thousands of kilograms. We also manufacture high-purity thallium iodide and other co-dopants that might be required for your process. We will work with you through the qualification process and ensure consistent quality/supply that works for your products.

High purity, anhydrous halides for gamma-ray detection

Sodium iodide scintillators have been used for gamma-ray spectroscopy for several decades. With the discovery of new scintillator compositions since the late 1990’s, efforts are underway towards their commercialization. APL provides high-purity, low moisture containing halide raw materials for the growth of single crystals. Typical ship volumes range from hundreds of grams to tens of kilograms. The materials are manufactured, processed and packaged under inert conditions. If you do not see a particular compound/purity in the list below, please feel free to reach out to us.
