"Ultra Green" Cerium Doped LuAG

Cerium-doped Lutetium Aluminum Garnet (Ce:LuAG) is a phosphor material that has gained significant attention for its industrial applications, especially in the fields of lighting and imaging. As a scintillator, Ce:LuAG is highly effective in converting high-energy radiation into visible light, which makes it particularly valuable in medical imaging systems such as computed tomography (CT) scanners and in security scanning systems. Its excellent light yield and fast decay time enable high-resolution imaging, crucial for accurate diagnostics and security inspections. Additionally, Ce:LuAG is used in LED lighting technology. When combined with blue or ultraviolet LEDs, it produces a bright, white light with good color rendering, making it suitable for various lighting applications where natural light reproduction is desired. This includes high-end, energy-efficient lighting solutions in commercial, medical, and automotive industries. The unique properties of Ce:LuAG, including its stability and radiation hardness, make it an important material in advancing imaging technology and developing efficient lighting solutions.

This "Ultra Green" sample is essentially Ce:LuAG, but it contains a significantly higher concentration of cerium (Ce). We've encountered only one such piece, and we consider ourselves fortunate to possess it.
