YAP (Ce)

YAP (Ce)

Summary

YAP (Ce) is a high density (5.5 g/cm 3) oxide crystal with a decay time about 10 times shorter than NaI(Tl). It is often implemented in detectors used for high count rate (up to several MHz) X-ray spectrometry. The non-hygroscopic nature of this material allows the use of thin mylar entrance windows. In addition, this quality guarantees extended life of the detector.
