The proper scintillation detector packaging and integration of scintillation crystals is a science combining advanced design and engineering skills with proven assembly techniques and materials to produce stable, high-resolution radiation detectors. Offering a variety of standard detector designs to fulfill most radiation counting applications: a packaged scintillator, a scintillator integrated (permanent or demountable) with a light-sensing device, and a detector with low energy entrance window.
Light sensor options included PMT, position-sensitive PMT and SiPM selected for low-background, premium resolution, fixed high voltage use, or gain matching.
Each of those standard detector configurations can be designed with one or more custom options* or add integrated or plug-on voltage divider, preamplifier, high voltage power supply and multi-channel analyzer.
*Custom designs can incorporate special flanges, mounting fixtures, low background packaging options, harsh environments to operate outside a standard laboratory environment (extreme cold, vacuum, elevated temperatures, underwater, severe mechanical shock and vibration) or other modifications can be requested.
Gain stabilization techniques are used to prevent loss of resolution due to gain drifts in PMTs and system electronics when making measurements over long time periods. Depending upon your requirements, we can supply detectors incorporating any of the following types of stabilization techniques:
|Electronics Based||LED||Radioactive Sources|
|Lowest background contribution||x||x|
|“On/Off” switch performance||x||x|
|Minimal mechanical design interface||x||x|
|Minimum drift with temperature||x||x|
