Abstract

We grew 1.5-in Eu doped SrI2 (Eu:SrI2) bulk single crystal by a modified vertical Bridgman (VB) method using a removable chamber and high-frequency induction heating. As-grown 1.5-in Eu:SrI2 bulk single crystal had no visible crack and inclusion in the crystal. In the transmittance and α-ray radioluminescence spectra, large absorption below 433 nm and emission peak at 433 nm were observed, respectively. Each polished Eu:SrI2 specimen indicated 56 000 ∼ 62 000 ph/MeV light yield and 3.3 ∼ 3.9% energy resolution. The decay times of the specimens were 0.61 ∼ 0.67 μs.
