We fabricated Pr3+-activated glasses having a composition of 10SrO–5Al2O3–85TeO2 (PSAT) for potential use as radiation detectors, and their photoluminescence (PL) and X-ray-induced scintillation properties were then characterized. The PSAT glasses showed several emission peaks in their PL spectra owing to the 4f-4f transitions of Pr3+. Furthermore, they exhibited typical PL decay times (0.09–0.86 ms), where the decay originated from the 4f-4f transitions of Pr3+. In the scintillation spectra of the PSAT glasses, three peaks at approximately 480, 618, and 636 nm were observed. The scintillation decay times were 0.747–0.840 ms, corresponding to the 4f-4f transitions of Pr3+. Furthermore, the PSAT glasses showed afterglow levels of 352–521 ppm, and the lowest afterglow level (352 ppm) was comparable to that of Tl-activated CsI single crystal.
