Preparation of Lead Iodide as Input Material for X-Ray Detectors


Article Preview

The aim of this work is to study the new method of direct synthesis of lead and iodine as the input material of PbI2. This method has not been studied for this material till now, and seems to be one of the new methods for preparation of the input material. The photoluminescence measurement and measurement of resistivity has been done and compared with the measurements done by precipitation and zone purification.
