Preparation and scintillation properties of YCl3:Ce crystals
- First Online:
Ce3+-activated YCl3 crystals have been grown by the Bridgman-Stockbarger method, and their scintillation properties have been investigated. The luminescence spectrum of YCl3:Ce has a complex character and consists of two overlapping peaks at 390 and 410 nm, characteristic of Ce3+ luminescence. The light output of YCl3:Ce as a function of Ce3+ concentration has a maximum at 1 mol % Ce3+.
