Zinc Sulfide:Silver
ZnS:Ag
Identifiers
Formula: ZnS:Ag
Item #: ZI-5942
Applications:

This material is useful in neutron detection devices.

Notes

Because of silver activated Zinc Sulfide's high scintillation effiency, a thin uniform layer of the material on one side of an inert glass or plastic operates as a neutron detector with a high sensitivity to alpha particles and a low sensitivity to beta particles and gamma rays.
