Abstract

This paper reports on the preparation and growth of Eu-doped strontium iodide (SrI2) single crystals by modified micro-pulling-down method. Influence of the Eu2+ and Eu3+ (introduced in form of EuI2 and EuCl3) on the luminescence and scintillation properties is analyzed. Sufficient optical quality of prepared single crystals was obtained allowing further characterization of their absorption, radio- and photoluminescence spectra. Photoluminescence and scintillation decay time of grown SrI2 crystals irradiated under γ-ray source were evaluated as well.
