Zecotek said its patented LFS scintillation crystals are known for their high light yields and ultra-fast decay times which allow for faster and higher-resolution operation of medical and industrial imaging devices including PET medical scanners.
Despite numerous applications of scintillation detectors in various industries, dispersion and afterwards, scattering of the produced optical photons are among the most important problems in their applications because it results in undesirable spatial resolution.
The presence of random irregularities in the ionospheric plasma density may cause amplitude and phase scintillation on signals of the global navigation satellite systems (GNSS).
In current industrial X-CT system, X-ray detection method is transforming X-ray photons into visible light photons via scintillation crystals or screens (e.g., CsI(Tl), Nal(Tl), and CdW[O.sub.4]) [7-9] at first and then converting light signal into electrical signal by means of photoelectric conversion devices (e.g., photomultiplier tube (PMT), photodiode (PD), and charge coupled device (CCD)) [10-13].
