LYSO from PROTEUS
excellence in inorganic scintillators to Proteus index
LYSO YSO YAP BGO CdI:Tl LSO:Ce PWO LiI:Eu organics

LYSO:Ce    Lutetium-Yttrium OxyorthoSilicate, Ce+3 doped
LYSO  crystals & assemblies 
LYSO has fast timing property, high Z number, used for PET detector arrays, also suitable to high energy physics study

Left photo shows the example of LYSO ingot and right shows the element exmaple for PET detector array
