CeBr3 – Cerium Bromide

Cerium Bromide single crystals are used in medical imaging, environmental testing and oil logging, detecting x-rays and gamma rays.

CeBr3 is a material of interest for high-resolution gamma-ray spectroscopy at room temperature, and offer low-noise alternative to NaI(Tl) material.
