BGO Detector

BGO

Summary

 BGO has the extreme high density of 7.13 g /cm 3 and provides a high Z value. This makes these crystals well-suited for the detection of natural radioactivity (U, Th, K), for high energy physics applications (high photofraction), and in compact Compton suppression spectrometers.
