Our Type X Standard assemblies are a family of scintillation
detectors characterized by having a right circular cylinder geometry and
one open face. Each Type X detector is ready for coupling to a
photomultiplier tube of your choice.
The detector is encased in a metal housing with a glass optical
window at one end. A variety of crystal materials and construction
methods are available. Specifications which apply to all Type X
detectors are shown in the general specifications table.
The Type X Family includes end-well,
side-well, thin window assemblies, and gamma camera crystal styles, in
addition to the popular solid cylinder styles.
