Growth of Cs2LiCeCl6 crystals and their response to gamma-rays and thermal neutrons(Conference Presentation)

Paper Abstract

The self-activated novel scintillating material, Cs2LiCeCl6, was grown and evaluated at BNL for dual gamma and thermal-neutron detector applications. Cs2LiCeCl6 belongs to the elpasolite family. Because of its cubic structure, Cs2LiCeCl6 has good potential for growth of large-volume ingots. The emission spectra showed doublet emission bands peaking at 384 nm and 402 nm, similar to CLYC. An energy resolution of ~ 6% at 662 keV was measured. Thermal neutrons were also detected with a resolution of ~ 4%. Results on the grown ingots using natural Li and enriched 6Li source materials will be presented and discussed.
