General description

Calcium tungstate (CaWO4) is an optical material, which can be used as a laser host material for a variety of electronic applications. It has a scheelite structure with luminescence, and thermo-luminescence properties.


CaWO4 can be used in the fabrication of a radio-sensitizer for cancer radiotherapy applications. It can also be used as a catalyst for the oxidation of organic substrates with hydrogen peroxide.

Various methods have been proposed and investigated for the purpose of reducing radiation exposures in cephalometric radiography. The purpose of this investigation was to use various dose-reducing methods from four major categories--(1) rare-earth intensifying screens, (2) rare-earth filtration, (3) prepatient...
