Paper Abstract

Incorporation of polycrystalline phosphor screens into efficient, high precision x-ray detectors requires an understanding of the subtleties of x-ray capture and subsequent light transmission in the screen, as well as an awareness of how phosphors affect detector calibration. We discuss the preparation of such phosphor screens and their characterization with respect to efficiency, stopping power, spatial resolution, decay time, and spectral output.
