Intrinsic materials can offer advantages over doped materials for some important applications. The doped material might suffer from non-uniform distribution of the dopant, such as fine-scale striations and larger scale segregation, which might affect the overall device response, especially for large-volume detectors such as those in demand for homeland security applications for gamma spectroscopy. Cs2LiCeCl6 (CLCC), being an intrinsic scintillator, can be grown in large volume to produce large detectors with good performance, provided the crystals are free from unwanted scattering centers. CLCC belongs to the elpasolite family and the structure is cubic, so large-volume ingots can be grown without the strains resulting from anisotropic thermal expansion coefficients. In this presentation, we will discuss extensive material characterization and device response of CLCC for gamma and thermal neutron detector applications.
