Abstract

KLi(Y1xCex)F5 (x 0.001, 0.01, 0.03) single crystals were grown from the melt using the precise atmosphere control type Micro-Pulling-Down (-PD) method to examine their potential as a new thermal neutron scintillators. The grown crystals were single-phase materials as confirmed by XRD. Ce3 5d-4f luminescence observed around 340 nm when exited by -ray. The radio luminiscence measurements under -ray excitation ( 241Am) demonstrated the light yield of 450 [ph/5.5MeV-] and the decay time excited by -ray exhibited 47 and 256 ns.
