Alkor Technologies produces custom size NaI(Tl) blanks and finished NaI(Tl) scintillation detectors with housing. Avaliable sizes of NaI(Tl) blanks: 0.5"x0.5" - 3"x6".
NaI(Tl) or sodium iodide doped with thallium scintillation detector. NaI(Tl) is by far the most widely used scintillator material. It is available in single crystal form or the more rugged polycrystalline form (used in high vibration environments, e.g. wireline logging in the oil industry).
Other applications of NaI(Tl) scintillation crystal include nuclear medicine, basic research, environmental monitoring, and aerial surveys. NaI(Tl) is very hygroscopic and needs to be housed in an air-tight enclosure.
NaI(Tl) scintilation detector efficiency and properties:
||Wavelength of max. Emission
||Right Yield Photons/MeV
Other names of NaI(Tl): NaJ (Tl), NaI( Tl )
