 CsI(Na)- Cesium Iodide (Sodium)


Cesium Iodide, activated with Sodium - CsI(Na) - is one of the brightest available scintillators, with a  

broad emission peaking at 420nm. CsI(Na) has good stopping power, physically rugged and and well

suited to a broad range of applications.


 Cesium Iodide - CsI(Na) - scintillator crystals are:



Cesium Iodide - CsI(Na) - scintillator crystals have the following issues which should be noted. They:
