Photogenics LGB scintillation crystal
for neutron detection
LGB ( 6Li6natGd10B3O9:Ce+ ) ( Lithium Gadrium Borate, Ce doped )
LGB scintillation single crystal and applied instruments are under the R&D work at Photogenics.

below photos show a couple of LGB crystal example, and emission spectrum is shown in right

Left spectrum exhibits LGB single crystal response to Cf-252 source.

as an extended trial of LGB scintillation crystal application, tiny crystal particles diffused into PVT base plastic matrix scintillator is also under the development
Left spectrum shows LGB / PVT base plastic scintillator matrix response to Cf-252 source

photograph in right, shows the example of thin disc shape LGB/PVT-matrix element ( 2mm thick x 2 inch dia )

  LGB scintillation crystal and instruments are under the R&D.
and . . . . this web-page is still under the construction.
