Inrad Optics has launched Scintinel branded stilbene scintillation crystals. These crystals include a product suite of off-the-shelf stilbene cylinders and custom shapes and sizes up to four inches. Scintinel crystals can be ordered standalone, wrapped in PTFE or packaged in an aluminum canister for easy integration with photomultiplier tubes.
Stilbene is a scintillator that emits light in the presence of nuclear radiation. Advantages of this solid-state, non-hazardous material include high sensitivity to neutrons and excellent discrimination between neutrons and gamma-ray radiation.
