Abstract

We studied optical- and scintillation properties of LuVO4 single crystal grown by the Czochralski (CZ) method with RF heating system. The vanadate crystal show high transmittance ( 80 %) in the 400-900 nm wavelength range. In both of photo- and radio-luminescence spectra, intense peak around 400-500 nm which was ascribed to the transition from triplet state of VO 43 was clearly observed. The main decay time component was about 17 s under 340 nm excitation. The scintillation light yield of LuVO 4 single crystals were evaluated to be about 10300 ph/MeV from the 137Cs excited pulse height spectra, respectively.
