Abstract

Gamma-ray and UV-excitation of cerium-doped rare-earth oxyorthosilicates (RE = Y, Gd, and Lu) has been used to investigate the emission mechanism for this family of scintillators. The data clearly indicate the presence of two different luminescence centers, which are attributed to cerium substitution in the two different rare-earth crystallographic sites. While this model explains much of the present and previous UV data, the gamma-ray induced emission from GSO requires a better understanding of the energy transfer between Gd and Ce.
