heal.abstract In this study Y3Al5O12: Ce powder scintillator was evaluated for use in X-ray imaging detectors. This phosphor, also known as YAG: Ce scintillator or P-46 phosphor, is a non-hygroscopic, emitting green light with very short decay time. These properties are very attractive for X-ray imaging. Y3Al5O12: Ce powder was used to prepare various test screens (33–166 mg/cm2). Absolute luminescence efficiency measurements were performed for various X-ray tube voltages (50–130 kVp). In addition parameters related to image quality such as the modulation transfer function and the detective quantum efficiency were examined. A theoretical model, describing radiation and light transfer, was employed to fit experimental data and to estimate values of optical parameters. Absolute efficiency was found to decrease with X-ray tube voltage. Highest efficiency was obtained for the 107 mg/cm2 screen. Light attenuation coefficients were close to those of green emitting rare earth scintillators. At low spatial frequencies the detective quantum efficiency was high for the 107–166 mg/cm2 screens. The light emission efficiency and imaging performance of Y3Al5O12: Ce was not better than currently employed scintillators. However due to its very fast response and high spectral compatibility to optical sensors it may be considered for use in digital imaging detectors. el
