The use of these scintillators is considered for a gamma-ray telescope operating in the 0.2 MeV¿50 MeV photon range. Inorganic scintillator compounds suitable for incorporation into glass-ceramics are assessed. In addition, several families of glass suitable for use as hosts for scintillating compounds are also reviewed.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||IOP Publishing||Keywords:||Glass-ceramic; Scintillator; Gamma-ray astronomy||DOI:||10.1088/1742-6596/620/1/012002||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Conference Details:||Applications of Novel Scintillators for Research and Industry (ANSRI 2015), Dublin, Ireland, 12–14 January 2015|
