On the growth and scintillation properties of Li6LuxGd1−x(BO3)3: Ce3+(where X = 0.0, 0.2, 0.5, 0.8, 1.0)

We have grown mixed crystals of Li<sub>6</sub>Gd(BO<sub>3</sub>)<sub>3</sub> and Li<sub>6</sub>Lu(BO<sub>3</sub>)<sub>3</sub>, Li<sub>6</sub>Lu<sub>x</sub>Gd<sub>1-x</sub>(BO<sub>3</sub>)<sub>3</sub>, doped with 3 mol% of Ce<sup>3+</sup> ion by Czochralski technique (x = 0.0, 0.2, 0.5, 0.8, 1.0). In this paper we have discussed the growth problems during… (More)
