Scintillators refer to materials which can absorb high-energy photons and incident particles such as protons, electrons and neutrons. The common scintillator materials include inorganic and organic crystals, organic liquids, and noble and scintillating gases. They assist in converting the gathered energy into visible or ultraviolet range of photons which ensures detection by photomultipliers and photodiodes. Besides this, scintillators help in efficiently determining the energy and time of incident radiation. When compared to other types of radiation detectors, these materials are more sensitive to deposited energy and have a faster response time with simpler, reliable and cost-efficient construction and operation. As a result, they find vast applications in nuclear plants, medical imaging, manufacturing industries, high-energy particle experiments and national security.
In the healthcare industry, scintillators are used to detect and analyze cardiovascular and neurological diseases. With the increasing occurrence of these ailments, the demand for scintillators is increasing across the globe. Moreover, the governments across the globe are implementing stringent regulations on the use of medical devices which, in turn, is pressurizing hospitals and healthcare organizations to adopt technologically advanced scintillation and radiation detectors. Additionaly, these materials are used by security and defense organizations worldwide to tighten homeland security and avert human loss. For instance, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in the United States has been supporting the development of solid organic scintillators under the Exploratory Research and Small Business Innovative Research programs for detecting radioactive substances and preventing radiological threats.
