Project title: Multicomponent garnet scintillators 
Researcher: Karol Bartosiewicz
Supervisor name:Martin Nikl, Co-supervisor: Marco Bettinelli, UNIVR

Project description

To prepare/obtain the undoped, Ce -doped (Gd,Y)3(Al,Ga)5O12 multicomponent garnets in powder, thin film and bulk forms
To characterize their optical, luminescence and scintillation characteristics
To find out relation between chemical composition of the host, the properties measured, technology-specific material defects and scintillation performance/application potential
Tasks and methodology:
 Preparation of materials in the project (AS Prague, UNIVR) and collaborating technological laboratories (Czech Technical univ., and Charles univ, in Prague, Tohoku university in Sendai, Japan). Bulk crystals by flux and micropulling down, thin film by liquid phase epitaxy, powders by solid state sintering, sol gel, Pechini and coprecipitation methods. Fellow will participate in selected technological runs.
Characterization by absorption and time-resolved luminescence spectroscopic studies, thermoluminescence, electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR), scintillation decay and light yield measurements. Evaluation of correlated experiments. Fellow will participate in all the performed experiments and will make all related data evaluation.
