Mg co-doping effects on scintillation properties of Ce:Lu1Gd2(Ga,Al)5O12 (LGGAG) were investigated. Mg 200 ppm co-doped Ce:LGGAG single crystals were prepared by micro pulling down method. Absorption and luminescence spectra were measured together with several other scintillation characteristics, namely the scintillation decay and light yield to reveal the effect of Mg co-doping. Ce4+ charge transfer absorption was observed below 300 nm in Mg,Ce:LGGAG which is in good agreement with previous reports. The scintillation decay times were accelerated by Mg co-doping.
