AB  - Novel radiation-hard scintillators were developed in the last years based on indium-doped ZnO ceramic with an extremely short decay time below a ns. Fast counting detectors and fast screens were considered as potential beam diagnostic applications of this material. At the GSI/FAIR facility, scintillation detectors are commonly used for measuring the intensity and detailed time structure of relativistic heavy ion beams. The scintillating material is inserted directly into the beam path. Signals from individual ions are counted, providing systematic-error-free beam intensity information. Standard scintillators require frequent maintenance due to radiation damage. To address this limitation, a large area ZnO radiation-hard detector was developed. The prototype detector operates at orders of magnitude higher irradiation levels, at higher counting rates and has better time resolution compared to a plastic scintillator. In addition, the novel detector material opens the possibilities for applications in other beam diagnostic systems, for example, scintillation screens for transverse profile measurements. Therefore, ZnO scintillation ceramics are of general interest for beam diagnostics.
