Abstract

The possibility of obtaining large area dispersed scintillators based on zinc selenide has been demonstrated. Potentiality of creation of two-component scintillation panels based on ZnSe(Te) and other scintillator (such as CdWO 4, ZnWO 4, GSO and LGSO) which has a luminescence maximum in the photo-absorption zone of zinc selenide was investigated too. Obtained experimental data testified to the effect of the adding oxide scintillators on radioluminescence spectra of the samples and the level of X-ray absorption of the scintillation panels on the basis of chalcogenide scintillator zinc selenide. The optimum size of the inorganic scintillator ZnSe(Te) particles for obtaining the high scintillation parameters in scintillation panels has been determined. Methodology of production of the scintillation panels based on fine-dispersed powder of ZnSe(Te) with stable and steady scintillation characteristics in the area of the panels was developed.
