Alkor Technologies offer a range of scintillation detectors: NaI(Tl), CsI(Tl), BGO, CWO, BaF2, LSO(Ce). Please send us your specifications, we will quote it within 24hrs.

Scintillator

We offer ready detector assembly (crystal + photomultiplier) and individual scintillation crystals of cylindrical shape, any technologically possible size, packaged in an aluminum case with a reflector of magnesium oxide and quartz or optical glass output window. According to customer demands it is possible to order only scintillation material in a vacuum pack.
