Scintillation materials convert high-energy radiation into many visible photons and, in combination with a photodetector, are used as ionizing radiation detectors. Since the discovery of ionizing radiation, there have been intensive research efforts in finding new, better performing scintillators, resulting in the development of a large variety of scintillation materials. Each scintillation material is tailored to a specific application to have the best performance. With ever-increasing material demands set by the various applications of scintillators, the search for even better performing scintillation materials remains an active field. This thesis explores newavenues of scintillation materials research in order to find the next-generation of scintillation materials.
