Abstract : The type of crystal counter which depends upon the combination of luminescent crystals and a photomultiplier tube shows promise of being of great service in the detection of radiations both because of its high sensitivity and speed of registry and recovery. This device has been developed by a large number of individuals, almost too numerous to mention; however, the origin of the system appears to rest with Coltman and Marshall,1 who employed powdered luminescent materials of the type used in previous commercial luminescent systems, and with Broser and Kallmann, who first appreciated the advantages of employing large, transparent, luminescent crystals and introduced organic materials.
