Abstract

Pr:LuAG has interesting properties of high density, high light yield and a very fast 5d-4f emission decay time. Recently we have develop 2-inch-diameter Pr:LuAG single crystal for scintillator applications such medical imaging and high-energy physics. In this report, we study uniformity of the light yield, energy resolution, decay time and γ-ray response in the range from 59.5 keV (241Am) to 1.4 MeV (241Am)
