About Us

Scintacor is a world leader in phosphor and scintillation technologies.

Founded as Levy West Laboratory in the 1920s, Applied Scintillation Technologies was one of the first producers of phosphors for a variety of X-ray screens. Early in its history the company made very significant contributions to the development and production of phosphors for the revolutionary H2S radar screens which were critical to the defence of Great Britain during World War II.

Applied Scintillation Technologies corporate name changed to Scintacor in 2015. Scintacor is now a world leader in phosphor and scintillation technology, manufacturing products which allow the conversion of many different radiations into light for imaging and detection. These products can be used in applications as diverse as medical and dental X-ray imaging, industrial quality control, neutron detection, oil well logging, mail, baggage and cargo inspection, analytical instrumentation and radiation protection. The impact of the company’s products can be felt from the deepest recesses of the earth to as far away as Mars and Mercury.
