Abstract Scope Non-crystalline glass materials have come a long way since the first demonstration as a laser host in the mid-1960s. Relative to crystals, ceramics offer improved flexibility in size and shape, and may be readily manufactured as large, homogeneous solids with excellent optical properties. Chemical or thermal treatments can increase the strength of glasses and the controlled crystallization of certain glass compositions can produce optical quality glass ceramics. Improvements in powder synthesis and annealing have led to notable achievements like tailoring the chemical composition so that glass ceramic can be used to detect gamma-rays and neutrons. In this presentation research on novel glass scintillators with good light yield, fast response, good energy resolution, and neutron/gamma discrimination are discussed. Included are robust glasses such as magnesium aluminosilicates doped with 6Li and activated with Ce3+.
