With the wavelength of the maximum emission at 560nm,YAG(Ce) can well matched to CCD sensitivity. And it is known as a kind of non-hygroscopic, chemically inert inorganic scintillation material. Ce:YAG is a reasonably fast scintillator with a relative light yield of 12% of NaI(Tl).Ce:YAG scintillators are used in SEM, electronic imaging, beta-ray and X-ray counters and imaging. It has excellent temperature and mechanical characteristics which makes it suitable for ultra-thin screen of <0.005mm. YAG(Ce) crystals has a high threshold for high energy electrons or ions, makes it suitable for high electric current environment.
