Flexible composite scintillators based on zinc selenide are the development of the Institute for Scintillation Materials. These scintillators are superior to the similar products in the parameters of the light output dispersion, the afterglow level and the sensitivity to X-ray quanta in the energy range of 20-70 keV. The silicone base of the scintillator and the scintillation zinc selenide powder have a high radiation resistance, resistance to weathering, vibration and mechanical stress. Flexible composite scintillators based on zinc selenide are used in two-energy X-ray scanners, computer tomography, detectors of soft gamma, alpha and beta radiations.
