The growth and scintillating properties of undoped and Eu2+ doped Strontium Iodide indicate
excellent potential for gamma ray spectroscopy. Energy resolution at 662 keV was found to be as
good as 2.7% at 662 keV. The effect of purification by zone refining was also studied and crystal
growth of SrI2 by the Bridgman technique was found to be less subject to cracking compared to the
growth of lanthanum halide scintillators.
