Abstract: The invention pertains to a scintillating material of the generic formula CsALiLn(1-x)X6: xCe3+, where X is either Br or I, A is Cs or Rb, Ln is Y or Gd or Lu and x is above 0.0005, generally under the form of monocristal. This material has a remarkably low decay time. It can be used to detect and/or discriminate neutron and/or gamma ray radiations.
