Paper Abstract

New dense oxide glass scintillator has been discovered in the system: B2O3-SiO2-Al2O3- Gd2O3 doped with trivalence cerium. This scintillator has a unique combination of properties including high scintillating light output, high density and desirable emission wavelength, large radiation hardness, short radiation length, and easy to produce in large size and low price. Here we compare the properties with those of the two recently developed dense scintillators: Ce3+-doped fluorophosphate glass and Ce3+-doped fluorohafnate glass, and with those of the three most widely used scintillating crystals Ce:YAP,CeF3 and BGO.
