Zecotek’s LFS scintillation crystals are distinguished by their combined high light yields and ultra-fast decay constant, covering a wide range of emission wavelengths, that set them apart from other industry contenders.

The LFS Advantage
The LFS superlative light yield (80-85% -NaI scale) and ultra-fast decay constants (33-36 ns) set them apart from other industry contenders. The superior radiation hardness of our LFS crystals also make them ideally suited for many types of high-energy physics experiments and other applications associated with high levels of ionising radiation.
“Zecotek provides LFS crystals required for the CMS experiment as they had the necessary energy resolution and radiation hardness . In using the thin LFS crystal plates Dr. Cox and his team were able to reduce the technical and cost risks associated with measurements in such experiments.”
“Zecotek provided Cherry labs with a selection of scintillation crystals from their patented LFS-3 range. After preliminary testing Cherry labs found the crystals to have the fast decay constant they required, enhancing results for their depth-encoded PET detector designs. This combined with the competitive pricing Zecotek is able to offer made for an ideal solution.”
MAPD Photodetector arrays & single elements
Zecotek has developed a new compact and cost effective photo detector for low light detection. Our new approach will phase out bulky and expensive PMT's, offering compact and cost effective solutions that can operate in the harshest conditions.
