Scintillating fibers consist of a polystyrene-based core and a PMMA cladding. The scintillating core contains a combination of fluorescent dopants selected to produce the desired scintillation, optical and radiation-resistance characteristics.
Sizes range from 0.5mm to 3mm either round or square cross sections and come in canes or spools. Custom sizes and designs are available on request for larger projects. Fibers >2mm are only available in cane form to prevent permanent bending whilst spooled.
Scintillating fibers are used in applications such as industrial gauging, calorimeters, and real-time imaging systems. In the UK we have many customers using scintillator fibers in muon imaging systems.
Luxium Solutions (previously Saint Gobain Crystals) are the premier scintillation detection manufacture for ionizing radiation detection and provide high quality scintillation materials with superior resolution and advanced photo-sensor integration. Their core technology is the manufacturer of high performance engineering materials to solve their customers’ unique challenges. Luxium Solutions and Mi-Net have been working together in the UK and Ireland for over 30 years.
