Preface Errata

  • (Lu,Y)AlO3 crystals doped with different concentrations of Nd were synthesized by the floating-zone (FZ) method to evaluate their scintillation properties, particularly in the nearinfrared (NIR) ... Read More

  • We have examined the effects of Bi concentration, annealing in air, and addition of reducing agent on the near-infrared (NIR) emission of Bi-doped TiO2–ZnO–B2O3–Al2O3 (TZBA) glass. Since th ... Read More

  • We investigated the photoluminescence (PL), scintillation, and dosimetric properties of strontium aluminoborate glasses with different thulium (Tm) concentrations of 0.1, 0.5, 1.0, and 5.0%. The ... Read More

  • Ce-doped Y4Al2O9 (YAM) crystals were grown by the floating zone method, and several different characterizations were conducted for scintillator applications. Both photoluminescence (PL) and scint ... Read More

  • Ce:CsCl transparent ceramics doped with different concentrations of Ce (0.01, 0.1, and 1 mol.%) were synthesized by spark plasma sintering, and their optical, scintillation and dosimetric propert ... Read More

  • The optical and scintillation properties of undoped, Sb-doped, and Tl-doped Cs2CdCl4 single crystals were investigated. We chose Sb3+ and Tl+ as the dopants of (ns)2-type electronic configuration ... Read More

  • We report on the photoluminescence and scintillation characterizations of new Tl2HfCl6 and Tl2ZrCl6 crystalline scintillators grown by the vertical Bridgman–Stockbarger method. Both Tl2HfCl ... Read More

  • The scintillation properties of Pr:CaF2 were studied in comparison with those of Eu:CaF2 under α-ray excitation using a sealed source of 241Am. The relative light yields of the Pr:CaF2 crys ... Read More

  • We investigated the basic thermoluminescence (TL) characteristics of Cr-doped low-meltingpoint Al2O3. The concentration of Cr2O3 in this study ranged from 0.01 to 1.0 wt%. Owing to the stabilizat ... Read More

  • A Cr-doped alumina (Al2O3:Cr) ceramic thermoluminescent detector (TLD) has the potential to be applied as a two-dimensional (2D) imaging device in radiation therapy. In this work, we investigated ... Read More

  • Cadmium telluride (CdTe) is a promising material for semiconductor-based roomtemperature radiation detectors because of its wide bandgap and relatively good carrier transport properties. One rema ... Read More

  • A direct charge-to-digital converter (QDC) based on charge injection for an X-ray/gamma ray photon counting detector is introduced in this paper. The proposed circuit is a direct conversion circu ... Read More
