Phosphor Screens, Scintillators & Glass Components
Scintacor has a long and established history in the manufacture of large area scintillators. Our experience and expertise in the design and manufacture of high-performance X-ray phosphor screens (based on Gadolinium oxysulphide, also known as GOS, Gadox Gd2O2S) and neutron detection screens (based on Lithium-6) has established relationships with global system integrators, developing a range of products that are used across broad range of applications. Our structured microcoluminar thallium doped caesium iodide (CsI:TI) is extensively used in the most demanding X-ray imaging applications for its superior performance compared to single crystal scintillators. From its origins as a crucial contributor to the development and production of phosphors for the revolutionary H2S radar screen during World War II, the impact of Scintacor’s products and enabling technologies are seen in, and were integral to, some of the most high-profile scientific advances in history - from deep Earth crust oil exploration to space exploration on Mercury.
