We have developed a remote scintillation detector using a CCD spectrometer and a red-emitting scintillator coupled with a 20 m optical fiber for ultra-high-dose conditions. Gamma rays were detected with a conventional deep-red-emitting ruby scintillator and Cs2HfI6, which is a novel material with 700 nm red emission and a high light output. The scintillators were irradiated with gamma rays from a 60Co source under an effective dose rate from ∼0.002 to ∼1 kSv h-1. The integrated area of the Cs2HfI6 emission spectra was larger than that of the ruby, and good linearity of the Cs2HfI6 signal as a function of dose rate was confirmed.
