YAG (Y3Al5O12(Ce)) is a non-hygroscopic, chemically inert inorganic scintillator. The wavelength of the maximum emission at 550nm is well matched to CCD sensitivity. YAG(Ce) is a reasonably fast scintillator with a relative light yield of 21% of NaI(Tl).
This material exhibits specific properties that make it an interesting candidate for electron microscopy applications. Other possible applications include beta and X-ray counting, and electron and X-ray imaging screens.
Non-hygroscopic material that can be supplied as pixels or screens.
Its mechanical properties enable screens down to 0.030 mm thick.
