# ${\rm Cs}_{2}{\rm LiYCl}_{6}:{\rm Ce}$ Scintillator for Nuclear Monitoring Applications

• Published 2009 in IEEE Transactions on Nuclear Science

#### Abstract

This paper summarizes the initial investigation of large diameter (2-inch) Cs2LiYCl6:Ce (CLYC) crystals grown at RMD. Although the crystals had some cracks, the tested sample provided adequate results: It produced a clear thermal neutron peak, a difference in time profiles under gamma and neutron excitation was observed, and pulse shape discrimination (PSD… (More)
