Efficient, fast and reabsorption-free perovskite nanocrystal-based sensitized plastic scintillators

Research highlights: innovative plastic scintillators for a new generation of high energy radiation detectors

An innovative plastic scintillator based on perovskite nanoparticles and organic molecules, capable of interacting with high energy radiation efficiently, quickly, and potentially much cheaper than commercial scintillator crystals has been created for a new generation of detectors by researchers from University of Milan-Bicocca and the start-up Glass to Power in collaboration with the National Institute of Nuclear Physics and the Italian Institute of Technology.

Nature Nanotechnology published the paper about this research that involves Department of Materials Science, UNIMIB, Italy, INFN Section in Milano-Bicocca, Italy, Department of Nanochemistry, IIT, Italy, Department of Physics, UNIMIB, Italy, Glass to Power Srl (G2P), Italy.
