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

Definition from www.dexonline.ro:
Substanţă în masa căreia se produc scintilaţii sub acţiunea razelor radioactive. – Din fr. "scintillateur".

Example sentence(s):
  • Fotonii (cuantele de lumină) produşi de cristalul scintilator intră în fotomultiplicator trecând prin ghidul de lumină G (care la unele tipuri de detector cu scintilaţie poate lipsi). - Univ. Tehnica Bucuresti - Fac. de fizica  
  • Prelevarea probelor pentru determinarea tritiului total (vapori de apă tritiată şi tritiu gazos) se va face în mod continuu, cu ajutorul unui sistem de colectare prevăzut cu un mediu de absorbţie selectiv, caracterizat de un randament de reţinere cât mai mare şi care să asigure o puritate a probelor corespunzătoare analizelor cu scintilator lichid. - Comisia Nat. pt. Contr. Activ. Nucleare  
  • Detectorul, de tip matrice liniara, este bazat pe scintilatori individuali din CWO de mare eficienta de detactie de raze X (Detection Technology, Finlanda). - RAPORT DE CERCETARE–DEZVOLTARE - NIMET
