Transparent ceramic composite of non-doped and Ce-doped YAG was prepared by Konoshima Chemical with the vacuum sintering technique and investigated on pulse shape discrimination capability for functional collimator. Scintillation responses such as X-ray induced radioluminescence and decay time profiles of non-doped and Ce-doped YAG were evaluated. Pulse shape discrimination capability of the composite ceramic was evaluated by 137Cs 662 keV γ-ray irradiation. As a result, clear separation of γ-ray events at non-doped or Ce-doped YAG layers was observed in two dimensional histogram by using signal processing with two different shaping times.
