 Abstract
In this study, a scintillation detector was fabricated using a silicon photomultiplier (SiPM) and a Ce:GAGG scintillator single crystal, and its spectroscopic properties were compared with those of commercially available LYSO and CsI:Tl scintillators using -ray spectroscopy. The energy resolutions of the self-produced scintillation detector composed of the scintillator single crystal (volume: ) and SiPM (Photosensitive area: ) for standard -ray sources, such as , , and were measured and compared. As a result, the energy resolutions of the proposed Ce:GAGG scintillation detector for g-rays, as measured using its spectroscopic properties, were found to be 13.5% for 0.356 MeV, 6.9% for 0.511 MeV, 5.8% for 0.662 MeV and 2.3% for 1.33 MeV.
