Ionizing radiation detectors

Ionizing radiation detectors

Fomos-Materials company produces scintillating elements that made of GGAG:Ce crystals. This materials can be applied in ionizing radiation detection systems. For example in 2018 some of GGAG:Ce "fibers" were sent to CERN for participation in set of tests including irradiation resistance. Tests were successfully finished and probably our material will be used in upgraded LHCb detector due to good results. GGAG:Ce has good properties like fast scintillation kinetics, lack of hygroscopic, high density, high light yield. So it can be used in cargo scanning and medicine. At least in such areas of non-invasive medical scanning where are rough requirements for decrease radiation time and applying high energies.
