Zinc Tungstate (ZnWO₄)

ZnWO4 exhibits a wide band gap and is stable under irradiation. It is an attractive material because of its optical and luminescent properties, which allow it to be used as a scintillation detector for UV, X-ray and synchrotron radiation; ZnWO4 is also a good candidate for double ß-decay for dark matter experiments.
Our 010-oriented ZnWO4 crystals are grown using the Czochralski method and are provided as whole ingots or wafers.
