Firstly the luminescence of Pr3+ and Nd3+ will be explored in a variety
of host lattices to obtain new and faster scintillator materials. Next
to that research will be done to understand and reduce the time for
initial build-up of the emission intensity.
It will also be investigated whether the costly process of single
crystal growth can be replaced by the significantly cheaper production
of highly transparent ceramic scintillators via sintering of
polycrystalline powders under high pressures and at high temperatures.
The project addresses many different capabilities and disciplines.
Each of the partners of the consortium contributes to one or more of the
capabilities and disciplines needed.
