Yttrium aluminium perovskite activated by cerium (formula YAlO3:Ce, abbreviated YAP:Ce) is systematically investigated in view of its use as efficient scintillator for various applications. The basic physical and chemical properties of YAP:Ce monocrystals are summarized in this paper. The luminescence, scintillation and absorption characteristics, the γ-ray detection capability, energy resolution in the range of 30-600 keV, light yield and radiation hardness are presented and compared with existing literature. © 1995.
