Li+ codoping of Gd3(Ga, Al)5O12:Ce (GGAG:Ce) single crystals induces the acceleration of scintillation decay time. However, its effect on the scintillation properties of GGAG:Ce remains poorly understood. Herein, the relationship between Ce/Li concentration and scintillation properties is investigated. GGAG crystals with a range of Ce and Li concentrations are grown by the Czochralski method and the scintillation decay and light output of GGAG:Ce, Li are measured. The results show comparable or improved performance compared with conventional scintillators. In optical absorption and photoluminescence (PL) measurements, the conversion of the stable Ce3+ to Ce4+ is not observed in a clear manner in GGAG:Ce samples with variable Li concentration. Instead, some defect-related absorption seems to appear. Temperature dependence of PL decay for samples with variable Ce concentration is also evaluated. A shift of the luminescence quenching temperature is observed for GGAG samples with >0.2% Ce.
