Paper Abstract

A new high efficiency, low-bandgap phosphor, ZnSe:Cu,Ce,Cl is described which exhibits a significantly higher quantum gain than conventional x-ray phosphors and more closely matches the spectral sensitivity of silicon sensors. For many imaging applications this phosphor thus promises significantly superior performance compared to conventional phosphors.
