Bojen Optics LYSO Special Components
LYSO Crystal，Cerium-doped lutetium yttrium oxyorthosilicate crystal ((Lu,Y)2SiO5:Ce, namely LYSO:Ce), is colorless and transparent, characterized by monoclinic structure. LYSO not only has excellent scintillation properties such as high light output, short decay time, high density and radiation hardness; but also has its emission peak wavelength 420 nm located in the sensitive region of PMT, and hence the emission can be effectively detected; besides, it has stable physical and chemical properties and hence is convenient for application. Therefore, LYSO is an excellent scintillation crystal. LYSO can be widely applied in the fields of nuclear medicine, high-energy physics and so on. It benefits detectors for obtaining high time resolution, spatial resolution and miniaturization.
