Luuk,

It was painful just reading your report, I can't imagine how the client must feel when his 2x2x2" CeBr3 turns into a pile of dust....

Hi Luuk,

that was a very interesting and also shocking read. Do you know why this happens specifically with CeBr3?

Hi Steven,
Yes and it was not one but 3 detectors, but these things happen.

Hi Matthias,
I don't know why it why it happens with these crystals and is not just CeBr3 but also LaBr3 and probably also with other high resolution crystal.
