    Bulk single crystals of multicomponent garnet scintillators Lu3-xGdxGayAl5-yO12:Ce exhibit much improved scintillation properties in optimized composition (x = 2-3, y = 2-3) compared to the simple Lu3Al5O12:Ce one. Namely, much higher light yield, less intense slow components and better energy resolution have been achieved. This work shows that comparable enhancement of scintillation performance can be reached in case of epitaxial garnet films of similar composition through the nature of trapping states acting in transfer stage of scintillation mechanism may be different. This is the first time, excellent scintillation properties were reproduced in epitaxial films. Lu3-xGdxGayAl5-yO12:Ce samples were grown by liquid phase epitaxy from BaO-B2O3-BaF2 flux and quantitatively compared with top performance bulk crystals as concerns light yield, energy resolution, scintillation decay and afterglow.
