NaI(tl) scintillator introduction

Thallium-doped sodium iodide (NaI(Tl)) is a widely used scintillation material in radiation detection applications. When high-energy photons or particles interact with a scintillator, it produces scintillation light that can be detected and analyzed to determine the energy and type of incident radiation.

NaI(Tl) scintillator has good energy resolution, high light output and relatively fast response time, making it suitable for a variety of applications such as gamma-ray spectroscopy, medical imaging and environmental monitoring.
The thallium dopant is critical to improving the scintillation efficiency of sodium iodide crystals because it helps convert ionizing radiation into visible photons. This makes NaI(Tl) a popular choice for many radiation detection and measurement systems.
