Cerium-doped lanthanum chloride LaCl3(Ce) is a newly developed scintillation crystal with hexagonal structure, colorless, transparent. It offers superior energy resolution, fast emission and excellent linearity. It has light output similar to NaI(Tl) but much better energy resolution. LaCl3(Ce) is a promising scintillation crystal used for various applications including Gamma-ray detect, Nuclear-medical imaging (PET,SPECT), High-energy physics, Security, Geological exploration and environmental monitoring fields.
