Thallium doped caesium iodide (CsI:Tl) is grown in a columnar ‘needle-like’ structure which provides excellent resolution, through reduced scattering, as each column of CsI acts as a light pipe channeling the visible light to the CMOS / CCD sensor below.
Scintacor’s extensive experience and infrastructure provides volume manufacture of caesium iodide to exacting quality standards whatever your application, size and shape profile requirements.
Our production and application methods of CsI coatings, and indeed all our specialised coatings, brings two distinct advantages:
Due to the slightly hydroscopic nature of CsI our coatings are encapsulated against moisture ingress. This encapsulation also provides a superior and robust finish to eliminate damage from transit and handling, maintaining image quality right to the edge of the scintillator, or sensor, area.
We also offer an optional reflector / absorber layer to tailor and improve the output characteristics to better respond to your systems requirements.
Our CsI coatings can be applied to your systems exact size and profile shape requirements, on a wide range of substrates, for both small and large volume production runs.
Each order, and CsI based product or component, is indeed bespoke to each client. Talk to us today via the online contact form or by telephone on +44 (0)1223 223 060.
