Keywords: lutetium pyrosilicate, yttrium pyrosilicate, gadolinium pyrosilicate, vacuum ultraviolet, photoluminescence

Undoped Lu2Si2O7 (LPS), Y2Si2O7 (YPS), and Gd2Si2O7 (GPS) single crystals are prepared by the floating-zone method. The X-ray diffraction patterns show the single phase of each material without any impurity phases. The luminescence properties of the samples are investigated under both vacuum ultraviolet (VUV) and X-ray excitation. When the samples are excited by VUV photons, intrinsic emission bands at 350–500, 320–480, and 310 nm are observed for LPS, YPS, and GPS, respectively. The X-ray-induced scintillation spectra have a similar spectral shape to those under excitation by VUV photons. The X-ray induced scintillation decay times of LPS and YPS are 48 and 13 μs, respectively. For GPS, two scintillation decay constants of 169 μs and 1 ms are observed.
