Abstract

Eu doped LiCaAlF6 (Eu:LiCAF) single crystal with 2-inch in diameter was grown by Czochralski technique. The grown crystal was free from any visible inclusions or cracks. The neutron responses using 252Cf were compared with that of Li-glass (GS20, Saint-Gobain). The position dependence of light yield in Eu:LiCAF single crystal was measured and the average value was 9700 ± 900 photons/neutron.
