Novel Solutions for Challenging Problems

Cesium Lithium Yttrium Chloride, CLYC(Ce)

Cerium-activated Cs2LiYCl6(CLYC) has gained attention in the recent years as a dual mode neutron-gamma radiation detector. With a ~5% gamma energy resolution, a high cross-section for neutrons due to 95% 6Li-enrichment, and good pulse shape discrimination (PSD), it is a promising replacement for medium resolution gamma-ray detectors as well as 3He tubes.

CapeSym's proprietary crystal growth process has overcome CLYC's incongruent melting problem and has now achieved the growth of 1-inch diameter crystals. Scale up to larger diameter crystals is in progress.
