Lab team

The laboratory's work is aimed at researching and creating new fluorescent materials, primarily scintillators, and methods for their production. Scintillators are materials that luminesce when interacting with ionizing radiation and, due to this effect, are used to register these emissions. Such materials are used in medical imaging equipment (X–ray computed tomography, PET), in remote baggage or transport inspection systems, in research equipment, including in detector installations at particle accelerators, for example, at the Large Hadron Collider. The development of these materials makes it possible to improve the characteristics of the equipment using them and increase its availability.

Research directions

Scintillation coatings

+
Scintillation coatings
Scintillation coatings are used in neutron radiography installations. And if you apply a coating on scintillation plastic, thus obtaining a phosphor detector (Phosphor + Sandwich), you can separate signals from different types of ionizing radiation.

3D printing of ceramics

+
3D printing of ceramics
Forming ceramics using 3D printing allows you to obtain products of complex shapes, for example, in the form of a cellular structure — a "grid" for monitoring the profile of charged particle beams. Our group became the first in the world to print scintillation ceramics on a 3D printer and measure its properties (article in CrystEngComm 2017,19, 4260-4264). It is also possible to print a reflective matrix using this method to place scintillation pixels in position-sensitive ionizing radiation detectors. This approach is applicable to the formation of pixel matrices, but is still under development.

Scintillation glasses

+
Scintillation glasses
The scintillation glasses developed by our group have two applications: "light" ones based on lithium disilicate are designed to detect thermal neutrons against gamma quanta, and "heavy" ones based on barium, gadolinium, silicon oxides for neutron and gamma radiation detection.

Scintillation ceramics

+
Scintillation ceramics
Transparent ceramics based on complex oxides with a garnet structure are a potentially cheaper and technologically advanced replacement for monocrystalline scintillation detector elements in medical and inspection equipment. Also, such ceramics are a promising candidate for the conversion of ionizing radiation energy into light in photovoltaic energy sources. The adjustment of scintillation properties to certain applications is possible due to compositional disordering — the creation of multicomponent solid substitution solutions.
