Title: Characterization of the intrinsic scintillator Cs 2LiCeCl 6

Abstract

In this work, we report on the scintillation properties of the intrinsic scintillator Cs 2LiCeCl 6 (CLCC), which is potentially useful for dual gamma-ray and neutron detection. CLCC is from the elpasolite family with a cubic structure. We grew the crystals at BNL by the vertical Bridgman growth technique. The luminescence spectrum of CLCC showed a doublet with peak maxima at 384 nm and 402 nm. The light yield of CLCC was approximately 20,000 photons/MeV, and the energy resolution was about 6% for 662-keV gamma radiation. A scintillation decay of ~81% of the total light was observed to be ~ 90 nanoseconds.
