Scintillation elements for gamma-ray detection
Increasing life expectancy is the priority task for all of humanity. It is difficult to imagine the development of new medicine and therapies without Human studies. PET-scanners, X-ray devices -are apparatus designed for deep analysis of the state of the human body. Their operation principle is based on the detection of gamma rays, which requires scintillation materials. Increasing life expectancy is useless without measures aimed at its protection, so security scanners are important as well as medical ones, and their operation principle has the same basis and also needs scintillators. Fomos-Materials offers scintillation elements (pixels, sections, fibers) made of GGAG:Ce (Gallium-gadolinium-aluminium garnet, doped with cerium ions).
