Over the last three years, there is a growing interest in the development of a new class of fast scintillators like LaCl/sub 3/:Ce and LaBr/sub 3/:Ce. The new scintillation crystals for the first time, have the main characteristic in producing a light photon number higher than NaI(Tl) at a wavelength suited for the photocathode. The most important characteristic of these crystals is represented from the scintillation light to be yield proportionality as a function of incident gamma ray energy… CONTINUE READING
