Detectores de centelleo líquido
Liquid scintillation detectors
Brand: Packard/ Tri-Carb 1150
Type: Equipment

They use the light-emission property of some materials when their free electrons produce excitations which later de-excite after the passing of ionising radiation. The emitted light turns into an electric signal that’s later measured with a photomultiplier.


Liquid scintillation is used in radioisotope measurement applications emitting beta particles when extreme sensibility is required.
