Preparation of single crystals GGAG for radiation detectors


Single crystals of garnets GGAG (see figure) of the starting composition Gd3Ga2.7Al2.3O12 are prepared by the method of Czochralski. They are doped by one or by combination of several from the following elements: Ce, Sm, Eu, Tb, Dy, Mg, Li.

Their qualities as the scintillation detectors of radiation are studied in the department of optical materials, their application perspectives are solved within the frame of collaboration with the firm Crytur from the town Turnov.
