We have developed a fast x-ray detector using an organic-inorganic perovskite scintillator of phenethylamine lead bromide (PhE-PbBr4). The scintillator had a dominant light emission with a fast decay time of 9.9 ns. An x-ray detector equipped with a 0.9-mm-thick PhE-PbBr4 crystal was used to detect nuclear resonant scattering in 61Ni (the first excited level: 67.41 keV; lifetime: 7.6 ns) by using synchrotron radiation. With this detector, we could successfully record the decaying gamma rays emitted from 61Ni with a time resolution of 0.7 ns (full width at half maximum) and a relatively high detection efficiency of 24%.
