Imaging Plates



CAWO DIGIT imaging plates for digital radiography feature high absorption efficiency, excellent homogeneity and short response time.
With a new coating technology the surface is very smooth and gives an improved signal-to-noise ratio.

Even the anti-halor layer forms a perfect barrier against laser light. On the other hand it easily lets through the stimulated light.

With the newly developed EBC (electron-beam-cured) top coat CAWO DIGIT imaging plates have a superb resistance to mechanical wear and extensive immunity to chemical cleaning solutions.

Additionally a new adhesion layer guarantees for a superior durability.



MS - General

The BAS-MS, like all Imaging Plates, has a flexible polyester base coated with highly dispersed barium fluorohalide phosphor crystals (BaF(Br,I):Eu2+).

When a radioactively labeled sample is exposed to an IP, the energy from that sample is transferred to the phosphor crystals, and stored as trapped electrons. In short, the electrons become trapped to form 'F-centers' in the BaF(Br,I) matrix.

Scanning the exposed IP with a He-Ne laser (633nm) releases the trapped electrons and photons at about 400nm. This process is known
as photo-stimulated luminescence. The blue light emitted is collected to produce the digitized image.

ND -Neutron

BAS-ND IP is the most accurate Imaging Plate for research using neutrons. The task of capturing and analyzing data from neutron crystallography, neutron radiology and monitoring has become much easier and accurate.
