Abstract : A method of producing scintillation phosphor X-ray detector arrays using bulk materials and repetitive manufacturing techniques. The structures formed by this method may be used to detect x-rays, charged particles and neutral particles by converting the incident radiation into optical radiation. Detectors manufactured by the methods of this invention will produce better x-ray images and reduce the amount of radiation a medical patient or industrial target is subjected to.
