I didn't know it was possible to clean a crystal after it was coupled to the pmt, so now comes the easy part, i just need a glove box and try to not break everything!
I'm joking off course, i still have many more test to do with my detector before trying to clean it. Above all it performs well enought for the moment relatively to my level.
Thank you very much for your answers. I appreciate it.

Hi Mattia,

Unfortunately is sound more simple than it is, to refurbish a detector/crystal.
You need some specialized equipment, and some skill to do it.
Not something you can do at home!
If you are interested to know how it is done, look in the "spectrum" section there I post a few reports on refurbishing detectors.
