Cesium hafnium iodide (CHI) was reported as a novel red-emitting scintillator in our previous article, while optimization of the crystal quality and evaluation of the scintillation performance were insufficient. In this study, a large and transparent CHI single crystalline specimen was obtained using slow crystal growth speed. Coupled with a Si avalanche photo-diode, the full width at half maximum energy resolution was evaluated to be 4.2 ± 0.2% at 662 keV which was the best value among conventional red-emitting scintillators. The scintillation light output, non-proportional response of light output and scintillation decay were also evaluated with a photomultiplier tube.
