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

Sintilatör/tanecik veya foton çarptığında parıldayan madde

Definition from Wikipedia:
A scintillator is a substance that absorbs high-energy (i.e., ionizing) electromagnetic or charged particle radiation then, in response, fluoresces photons at a characteristic Stokes-shifted (i.e., longer) wavelength, releasing the previously absorbed energy. See also: scintillation (physics).

Example sentence(s):
  • Scintillators are used in several physics research applications to detect electromagnetic waves or particles. - Wikipedia  
  • Scintillators often convert a single photon of high energy radiation into high number of lower-energy photons, where the number of photons per megaelectronvolt of input energy is fairly constant. - Wikipedia
