English term or phrase: scintillator
Definition from European Nuclear Society:
Substance in which flashes of light are generated by impinging ionizing radiation (fluorescence). Nal(Tl)-monocrystals are particularly suitable for the detection of gamma radiation and anthracene or diphenyl oxazole dissolved in toluene is suitable for beta radiation. ZnS(Ag) is a favourable scintillator for detection of alpha radiation.

Example sentence(s):
  • Gadolinium silicate doped with cerium is a "fast" crystal and can be used as a protection scintillator. Its possible applications include computer tomography, spatial resolution of less than 1 mm. Marketech International
  • YAG (Yttrium Aluminum Garnet) single crystal scintillators are chosen by many scanning electron microscopists because they have a very fast response time of 50 - 60ns and (unlike plastic or most phosphor scintillators) they do not degrade when bombarded by electrons or ions. Canemco & Marivac
  • Plastic scintillators are prepared by bulk polymerization in aluminium (size up to 3.5 m) or glass cast and by pressure molding technique. Amcrys-H

सिंटिलेटर (प्रस्फुरित्र)

Definition from wikipedia:
सिंटिलेटर (प्रस्फुरित्र) एक ऐसा पदार्थ है जो आयनीकरण करने वाले विकिरण द्वारा उत्तेजित किए जाने पर संदीप्ति का गुण दिखाता है। किसी आने वाले अणु द्वारा प्रभावित होने पर संदीप्त पदार्थ, इसकी ऊर्जा ले लेता है और प्रस्फुरित होता है, अर्थात ली गई ऊर्जा को प्रकाश के रूप में छोड़ता है जो आमतौर पर दिखाई भी देता है।

Example sentence(s):
  • सेरियम में डूबा गैडोलिनियम सिलिकेट एक 'तीव्र' क्रिस्टल है और एक सुरक्षात्मक सिंटिलेटर के रूप में उपयोग किया जा सकता है। इसके संभावित उपयोगों में कंप्यूटर टोमोग्राफ़ी, 1 मिमी से कम वाला स्पेशियल रिज़ॉल्यूशन शामिल हैं। - Marketech International
